AFP - Lame Duck Legislating

In the election aftermath, Congress is back in Washington to begin the lame duck session. Threats to economic freedom are front and center as legislators are poised to use the election’s hangover, holiday cheer, and the votes of retiring and defeated members to slip bad legislation right under the wire.

 

AFP activists from across the country are more engaged than ever. Our folks are eternally vigilant and remain keenly focused on the big policy fights in the lame duck session and the pending fiscal cliff. Join them in making sure Congress knows that grassroots citizens from across the country are watching these lame duck votes.
