Subject: Call To Action (sent to you on June 6, 2011)
CALL TO ACTION -- estimated chance of success is 99.9%, if you get involved!
[Note that 80-20 predicted a 99.9% chance of success, 4 months earlier.]
On May 26 Repts. Judy Chu (D-CA) and Judy Biggert (R-IL) introduced a bipartisan resolution (not a bill) expressing regret for six decades of legislation targeting the Chinese people for physical and political exclusion, including the infamous Chinese Exclusion Act. It is known as House Resolution 282. A parallel bipartisan Senate Resolution 201 was also introduced by Sens. Diane Feinstein (D-CA) and Scott Brown (R-MA).
On May 28, Cong. Chu asked 80-20 to help secured co-sponsors of both resolutions. This Call To Action" is to ask YOU to help secure co-sponsorship from your own Congressperson.
[A demonstration of 80-20's political clout - getting co-sponsors]
80-20 never asks our supporters to do anything which it doesn't do itself. So, we first spent the last 6 days securing co-sponsors ourselves. Result? A complete success! The ENTIRE congressional delegation of Delaware, the First State, became co-sponsors. Senator Tom Carper & Chris Coons are co-sponsoring S. Res. 201. Delaware's one and only Congressman, John Carney, co-sponsors H. Res. 282. When S.B. wrote to thank each, Senator Tom Carper mailed back and said, "S.B. you are welcome, but it is we who should thank you. All the best. Tom"
[Unceasing effort to get YOU politically involved]
Will you please work with 80-20 to become a successful lobbyist of your own Congressperson? It'll be educational and fun. :-)

YES. If Congresswoman Judy Chu encounters resistance to her House Resolution 282, and if she requests 80-20's help, 80-20 shall provide it.
