Congressional Member’s Report Card

WHAT? Democracy. WHO? Decides.

Perspective

HISTORICAL CONTEXT

  • From 1969-1972 in the space of only 4 years by our collective citizen engagement, we made Congress enact public polices for the good of all of us from major environmental laws like “The Clean Air Act,The Clean Water Act, The Endangered Species Act”, and a series of additional consumer-protection agencies, including the Environmental Protection Administration (EPA), the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), and the Consumer Product Safety Commission (CPSC).
  • In response to these government regulations brought on by public interest groups and environmentalists, businesses began to to cooperate together and added huge financial resources and professional advise to counter these advances. Currently in Washington, 5 Key operatives namely the Front Groups, Think Tanks, Public Relations Firms, Lobbyists and Media representing business interests before regulatory agencies and federal courts has mushroomed to unprecedented numbers .
  • Given this history the responsibility falls on us the American Citizens to stay engaged and ensure democratic processes are followed by our elected congressional members upholding the will of us the people by implementing sensible public polices.
