Democrats Take On Rubber Stamp Republicans
You won't see this on tonight's news, but thanks to Crooks and Liars, you can download House testimony from Democrats who stand for a lot more than the media would have you believe.
From the Rubber Stamp Clearinghouse:
To put it plainly, the Republican Rubber Stamp Congress doesn't care about you. Their major legislation, engineered by the White House and Tom DeLay and rubber stamped by the Republican rank and file, appears to be little more than a quid pro quo with huge special interests -- with cynical indifference to the problems facing middle class Americans. As health care costs have continued to skyrocket, Republicans passed legislation that provided almost $140 billion in windfall profits for their donors in the pharmaceutical industry, while making it explicitly illegal for the federal government to bargain for lower prices and preventing ordinary seniors from importing FDA approved drugs from Canada at a lower cost. As millions of Americans lost their jobs in the Bush/ DeLay economy, House Republicans gave away billions in taxpayer money to special interests like Big Oil. As millions more Americans struggled to make ends meet, Republicans cut the right to overtime pay for countless workers.
