This past Wednesday, the Administration's allies resorted to procedural gimmicks and fear-mongering to prevent the House from voting on the RESTORE Act, which would significantly repair much of the damage done to civil liberties by the so-called "Protect America Act," and would refuse to grant immunity to phone companies that assisted the NSA in spying on ordinary Americans. RESTORE isn't perfect, but it's a good start.
We're expecting the RESTORE Act to come back to the floor any day now, and are again expecting strong resistance from the Administration. So call on your Representative now to oppose parliamentary obstructionism that is intended to scuttle a vote on the RESTORE Act or slip telecom immunity into the bill at the last minute.
It's time for the House to vote on RESTORE and say no to telecom immunity.
Do it. Chicago Northsiders: Rahm Emanuel's number is (202) 225-4061.
