Force Barney to Schedule a Hearing on HR3149 NOW!!!!!!!!!!
Call and write Barney Frank 24/7 Until We Get a Hearing and HR3149 is moved out of his House Commitee on Financial Services and brought to a vote in the House at-large! We got it confirmed from inside sources that he refuses to let it move forward or be scheduled for a hearing.
All Members use the following #s (202) 225-5931 to call him and (202) 225-0182 to FAX him. (For Members in Frank's district see additional info. below) They will ask you of course if you are a Barney Frank constituent (a.k.a. live in his district), if you are, of course answer “yes” and if you are NOT (and are NOT timid) say that you can’t get through on the number given for the Financial Services Committee, but are demanding that YOUR voice be heard nonetheless. [WE MUST GET BARNEY’S ATTENTION ANY WAY LEGALLY POSSIBLE!] Put this number on speed dial and call it repeatedly on a diaily basis until we advise that we have HR3149 out of committee.
Put Barney's number in discussions, on blogs, in comments to articles, etc. Anywhere you can get in and ask people to call and keep calling until he gets HR3149 out of his committee.
Specific Messages for Barney
1) Since he took a total of $25 K from TransUnion, Equifax and Experian (the big 3 credit bureaus making millions off selling YOUR personal credit report to employers) during the '08 political contributions cycle, we question his loyalty to “we the people” who are suffering by the millions in America due to the discrimination and invasion of privacy by employers who are forcing people to turn over their personal credit report just to be able to work.
2) We're also well aware of the $104,727 that members of his committee took from the big three credit bureau PACs and the back room deal making that is taking place to try and kill the legislation.
3) We now have boots on the ground in his district and are actively and passionately mobilizing to let his constituents know about the $25 K in PAC contributions he accepted from the big three credit bureaus and more importantly to let them know they have been completely forgotten when it comes to passage of H.R.3149: The Equal Employment for All Act.

You’ll need to have your full 9 digit zip code handy. Use the following link to look it up if you don’t already know it.http://zip4.usps.com/zip4/welcome.jsp
If you don't actually live in Barney's district but want to write him any way (BTW this is "highly discouraged" by members of Congress) here's how: Mapquest and USPS zip code finder . . . you'll figure it out ;-) and NO! you can't get arrested for it any more than members of the House Committee on Financial Services can be arrested for taking $104,727 from the big three credit bureaus and making back room deals to kill HR3149. Lobbyists for the big three credit bureaus can just drop by Barney's office, but YOU can't get access because YOU didn't contribute $25 K to his campaign or live in his district?
That's NOT democracy, that's the American elite and the lobbyists taking care of their own via money and corruption of democracy.
