*** VOTER ALERT ***
Monday could shape up to be an important day for conservatives and Republicans alike. If enough of us ordinary American voters call our elected representatives and demand that they tell House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to add the Broadcaster Freedom Act (“BFA”) as an amendment to a Financial Services appropriation on Tuesday, the BFA could get a full and fair up-and-down vote.
The BFA, which has been tweaked by Republicans for a long time to prevent the unconstitutional infringement upon free speech through measures such as the poorly-named “Fairness Doctrine,” has been recently expanded in scope to address any efforts undertaken by Democrats to censor political speech on local and other levels.
Pelosi, in typical partisan form, announced the Monday amendment deadline on Friday afternoon, leaving little time for proper grassroots support and intervention.
So, this weekend, take a few minutes and:
- Call your congressman or congresswoman (find their contact information HERE).
- Ask them to tell Nancy Pelosi to tack on the Broadcaster Freedom Act as an amendment to Tuesday’s Financial Services appropriation.
- (Optional, but encouraged.) Check in here at America’s Right. Tell us who you called, and what they said.
