Washington, DC- Following news that a Louisiana District judge overruled Governor Jindal’s attempt to overturn Common Core for reasons of “irreparable harm” to those who have been preparing for the changes, FreedomWorks President Matt Kibbe released the following statement:
Texas Gov. Rick Perry has pleaded not guilty to charges that he abused his power with a controversial veto threat, as he vowed to fight and “prevail” in the case.
Today, we went to Senator Thad Cochran’s office here in Jackson, Mississippi to deliver letters from grassroots activists. As his constituents, we wanted to make it clear that we DO NOT support the re-authorization of the Export-Import Bank. The government wastes millions of dollars in crony capitalism and flying executives around the world. A seemingly simple statement from voters to their representative. But, to our surprise, Sen. Cochran’s staff refused us access to our very own Senator’s office to deliver these letters. Check out the photo gallery of our protest.
As one of our more than 6.6 million FreedomWorks members nationwide, I urge you to contact your senators today and ask them to support Senator Rand Paul’s Fifth Amendment Integrity Restoration (FAIR) Act, S. 2644 and to co-sponsor the bill if they have not already done so.
