Here’s a quote from Senator Dianne Feinstein (credit to DownsizeDC blog) on the subject:
“Unbeknownst to any of us, in March 2006, in the PATRIOT Act reauthorization, a provision was included that allows the Attorney General to appoint an interim U.S. attorney for an indefinite period of time.”
Maybe she should have read the bill she voted for, before she and her reckless colleagues turned it into law.
Now she wants to undo it by passing another law. I wonder if she’ll read that one? It would be even better if she wrote it.
Doesn’t it make sense that congress should read and write the bills they vote on? Want to tell them this yourself? Drop by Downsize DC and send a message concerning the Read the Bills act and the Write the Laws act.
If you want to preserve your right to speak to your congressman through an organization like DownsizeDC, then you might also want to talk to your congressman about their attempts to stifle grassroots organizations with regulation.
Let them know what “shall make no law… abridging the freedom of speech” really means. Clearly they don’t understand it themselves.
If the idea of congressmen voting on legislation they didn’t write and haven’t read doesn’t scare the pants off of you, then perhaps you should wander over and give The Late, Great American Nation a read.
If that doesn’t do it, I don’t think anything else will.
