***Hey Trumpsters, your Party is meeting to take away more of your freedoms next week!!!***

The House Judiciary Committee will meet February 15th to amend and vote on the Fairness in Class Action Litigation Act and the Asbestos Transparency Act (think of the Clear Skies Act allowing more pollution).

Last week the Committee considered the Lawsuit Abuse Reduction Act and the Innocent Party Protection Act and voted them out of Committee. Today they voted the Stop Settlement Slush Funds Act out of Committee.

These 5 Tort reform bills will be ready to go to the House floor next week in what they are calling "Lawsuit Abuse" week. A hearing entitled "Lawsuit Reform" had to be canceled and will be rescheduled as the House was not in session.

They do not want you to be able to ever sue a corporation!!! These bills are designed to protect corporations, plain and simple. How many saw any of this on the MSM?

1. People dont know about this and dont care.

They will be rudely aware of it when their family member dies from a product they cant sue over.

6. Nothing registers with them unless it's taking away womens', peoples of color'

and immigrants' rights. And they're fine with that.

2. So when they get sick

from working on oil rigs, or are vets from the war and their weird illnesses. This is about to turn the country into a giant ashtray and there ain't nothing we can do now.

When they can't breathe because our air looks like China, you can't blame Obama.

4. Republicans are thoughtlessly, merrily giving away rights

and they meekly Assume the Position for their billionaire IKGOP overlords.

Sad.

5. This goes hand-in-hand with eliminating regulations.

With all of the toxic pollution coming our way the corporations still need to be able to avoid liability for their harm!
