HR811: In Holt’s own words, three short videos

Congress is poised to pass another phony bill. Like the “Patriot Act”, designed to strip civil liberties from American patriots and other free citizens of the world, or the “Clear Skies Initiative”, designed to allow corporations to pump more poisons into our heavens. The “Voter Confidence Act”, or HR811, or the Holt Bill, is being brought to the House floor today.

Learn more about this dangerous legislation from its prime sponsor, Congressman Rush Holt himself. View these three short videos, taken from a town meeting with Congressman Holt’s constituents in July 2007.

Is his bill good for the nation? You be the judge.

Message from Mark: "I am a one-man operation, although assisted greatly by some volunteers, and, now and then, by people paid by others for one-time projects. There is no shortage of skilled, dedicated folks out there who want to help me. There is, however, nothing I can pay them with, unless you decide you can contribute something."
