SOME OF THE SIGNS FROM THIS EVENT:2-25-poster-12-25-poster-22-25-poster-32-25-poster-4

Rep. Walter Jones (R-North Carolina) became the first Republican to cosponsor the Protecting Our Democracy Act, which would create a 12-member committee to conduct an independent, bipartisan, 10-month investigation into the role Russia played in swaying the presidential election.  WHERE IS FASO ON THIS????

Recent Faso votes against environmental protection and worker protection.

The measure would disapprove of the Securities and Exchange Commission (SEC) rule issued in July 2016 that requires resource extraction issuers (companies that extract oil, natural gas or minerals) that are registered in the United States to provide detailed, public reporting of certain payments to governments that equal or exceed $100,000 per project annually.
Rep. John Faso voted YES

Disapprove Stream Buffer Rule – Vote Passed (228-194, 10 Not Voting)

Today John Faso sent out an e-mail complaining that he is already being targeted for the next election and asking for donations for his re-election. He says Democrats are going to pour hundreds of thousands of dollars into defeating him. But what about the millions he received from billionaires whose interests are in securing his votes to continue the destruction of the middle class – such as weakening regulations on Wall Street and lowering taxes on the rich.

In the less than a month he has been in office, he is already showing us who he is;  voting against veterans, voting against the Affordable Care Act, and voting against a woman’s right to choose.

Informed people are the best voters and activists. A new website will be following our elected officials and will be posting significant votes and actions, beginning with our US Senators and John Faso. There will also be a page devoted to George Amedore and Pete Lopez.  The site is HTTP://SEEDSOFDEMOCRACY.ORG. 

Check it out, access it very often, and tell others about it.

Before casting your vote for the NY 19th Congressional district, please check out the real John Faso.  In 13 years in the State assembly, he missed nearly 1700 votes (NY Post – 5/8/06). He claims to be against special interests and corporate welfare – then why has he received $500,000 donations from Wall Street insiders, and why has he worked for corporate, and anti-environmental interests as a lobbyist? Let’s see where his money has come from in his long and checkered Albany career – let’s see his tax returns.
