Your Government is in a Rush to Pass a Constitution-Shrinking Law Before the Public Reads it. Why?
Your government is in a big rush. All of a sudden, poof!, just like that, dealmakers in Congress have announced that a bill called H.R. 6304 will be voted on tomorrow.
But here’s the thing — the bill is so new, just introduced, that the Library of Congress hasn’t even yet published it for, oh, I don’t know, the American public to read or something.
Why is your government in such a hurry to pass a bill before the American public reads it?
Fortunately, the Electronic Freedom Foundation has obtained a copy of the text of H.R. 6304, and we’re providing a mirror copy it for you to download and read.
Download it. Read it. Then agitate. Call your House Representative. Tell him or her to put a brake on the passage of this act until the American public gets a chance to read it. Ask if he or she has actually read the bill. Chances are, the answer is no. See if you’ll get an honest answer.
Don’t let your government turn representative democracy into a sham.
