Kill the gag rule on ethics reform debate!
Newspapers around the country are condemned the House ethics and lobbyist reform bill as a "joke" (Washington Post" and "snow job" (USA Today.) And worst of all, Republican leaders are now trying to silence debate on this sham bill by getting the Rules Committee to issue a "closed rule."
The Rules Committee votes this Wednesday. Tell House Minority Leader Nancy Pelosi and House Minority Whip Steny Hoyer to unite the Democrats in opposing the gag rule - and to support amendments to strengthen this toothless bill! (A similar message will be sent to activists in all our districts, but letting the House leadership know that we are on to their game is especially important.)
As always, you can make your message even stronger by adding your own words, thoughts and feelings, especially in the subject line and opening paragraph.
