Here Come the Lobbyists
is reporting that our corporate lobbyists are once again trying to get their global labor arbitrage agenda attached to a must pass bill.

Here are our corporate purchased Senators:

Senators Ted Kennedy (D-MA)
John Cornyn (R-TX)
Maria Cantwell (D-WA)
Orrin Hatch (R-UT)

I'm sure there are many more corporate congress reps than this:
Reps. John B. Shadegg (R-AZ)
Ellen Tauscher (D-CA)

Forget talking to Congress - Talk to Roy Beck

Roy Beck from NumbersUSA is in the position to make a difference on the ground.

Many of us have gone to Washington D.C. with this result:

  • talked to our representatives (or more likely, their aides)
  • had them pretend to listen to us
  • went back home
  • watched nothing happen

Roy is a straight-shooter with the potential of leading politically.

Roy and Rosemary- if you're listening- you know how congress pushes through "dead of night" legislation and you know how to stop it!


I have to agree with you in that they have stopped the bills and as we saw last night in the State of the Union, not only are both parties planning giving unlimited H-1B Visas and whatever other guest worker Visa they can find but all of the major Presidential candidates have promised corporate lobbyists pretty much the same thing.
