Once again the Bush Administration is attempting to avoid the law and court decisions by having their stooges in Congress offer a new bill retroactively legalizing all the illegal Bush actions to date. Once again, Bush has said, and it's written in to this bill, that he will be able to AGAIN avoid court review of his actions. This is about the Administration backed 'Specter' Bill supposedly a 'compromise' but in actuality giving Bush everything he wanted: essentially a free hand to do as he wishes.
Two other bills are on the floor of the Senate, one offered by Rebel Republicans and one offered jointly by Senator Specter, whose original bill was hijacked and carries his name, and Senator Feinstein of California. We want the Feinstein Bill to pass . . . but more importantly we want the Administration Bill NOT to pass. We must stand up and fight to a finish to block this bill.
We cannot let this original Administration backed 'Specter' bill pass. Write your letters and then, if you would, follow them up with phone calls to the Democratic leadership at 888-355-3588 or 800-828-0498. If there was ever a time for a filibuster . . . this is it.
Take action today, please! Some of our most basic freedoms are at stake. This Administration thinks nothing of ignoring our Constitution. They must be stopped. Today is the day.
