This is really playing dirty.

Freedom of speech in this country is a joke under the steal and spend Republicans.

GOP Gags Witnesses on Credit Card Woe

The future of our country depends on getting these anti-Americans out of our govt once and for all.

This is outrageous!

They came to the nation’s capital this week from as far away as Denver, Chicago and Niagara Falls—five people who’d had tough experiences with their credit cards and were asked to share those tales with a House panel. Instead, they ran headfirst into the buzz-saw of Washington politics when the panel’s Republicans insisted the visitors allow their lenders to discuss their financial histories publicly—in any forum, at any time.

For four of the five, it was a deal-breaker. Instead of signing the waivers (pdf) allowing them to testify Thursday, they all sat silently in the audience.

We need to lead the march for 2008 against oppression within our own gov’t by these bozos.

So perhaps our slogan should be: We’re fed up and not going to take it anymore!
