Louisianans, Why Vote Saturday, December 7th?
Need a reason to vote? Consider protecting the very
slight majority that should now allow Trent Lott (R-MS)
to lead the Senate (currently 51 of 100 senators).
By contrast, in these last two years under Tom Daschle
(D-SD) the Senate has obstructed the progress we have
elected our officials to make.
Along with the Homeland Security Act of 2002 and the
Economic Security and Worker Assistance Act of 2001,
which languished for many months and were brought to a
vote only after the public declared its will in the
November 5th general elections, the examples below are
critical bills which have been held up by the Daschle
Most of these proposals passed the House with broad,
bipartisan support and the President has been waiting
month after month, to put them to use for us.
The election of Suzanne Terrell would help to assure
that new Senate leadership brings our important
legislation to a vote. Please consider this and please
pass this notice along to your friends and neighbors.
If you do, it will get to many voters who would like to
see the facts. And that could make a life and death
