Contact Your Member of the House

1) Contact Your Member of the House

DON’T FORGET TO PICK UP THE PHONE AND CALL as well as e-mail your member of the House to push for a hearing on HR3149 NOW! These people work for YOU and YOU pay them $170 K per year so make them earn it. Don't just leave a message or speak to some clerk or underling, demand to speak to YOUR representative personally (even if you don't it still makes more of a point).

They’re asking for your vote in a few weeks, so ask them what have they done for you in regard to passing HR3149? Hold them accountable and don’t allow them to say it’s in committee and they have no recourse to help . . . ask them to pick up the phone and contact Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi to demand a hearing NOW!

In just a few short weeks I’m going to vote, but since I’ve written and called repeatedly for passage of HR3149: The Equal Employment for All Act and have yet to see a mark-up hearing . . . my vote is up in the air. Jobs and the economy, of which HR3149 is a huge part, is the No. 1 issue in America and HR3149 has sat stalled because of PAC money and lobbyists for more than a year. With all due respect that’s NOT democracy by 90 percent of the people who support passage and it’s completely unacceptable! Corporations are NOT citizens . . .

More than 75 million Americans are barred from changing jobs for higher pay or locked out of the workplace entirely because their credit scores are below 700. This is not some minor issue, it’s a national crisis and it demands attention before you break to campaign and ask for my vote. Please pick-up the phone and call Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi and demand a mark-up hearing so America can get back to work. Almost half the entire U.S. workforce is now impacted by credit scores, but with five applicants for every job that exist the discrimination will just continue as long as it is allowed by law. Haven’t enough Americans lost their homes and cars already? Why would you condone throwing even more Americans out into the streets just so the credit bureaus can make a buck off selling credit reports?

You’re my representative in the House so I have no choice but to hold you responsible in November if there is no mark-up hearing before you break to campaign. Please, please, please do the right thing for the American people and contact Barney Frank and Nancy Pelosi today to demand a hearing on HR3149. I’ll be voting based upon your ability to get this accomplished and appreciate your efforts. The time has come to do what’s right for the American workforce. Humans can't just sit and wait on food, let’s get this done before more children needlessly go hungry.
