Stop the right-wing from blocking Obama’s Attorney General

Stop the right-wing from blocking Obama’s Attorney General
Turning hope into action: Standing up to torture
They want to stop Obama from investigating torture.
CREDO rejects Sen. Cornyn’s pro-torture stance. Stop conservatives in the Senate from blocking the nomination of Eric Holder for Attorney General and holding up President Obama’s agenda.
 
This is a time of major transition in America — with a new president and a more progressive Congress, it is now possible for us to enact the kind of changes we could only dream about for the last eight years.
But change won’t just happen. Without our vigilance, a conservative minority will block the most progressive elements of President Obama’s agenda.
Last December, we sent out a survey asking you what issues we should prioritize in 2009. Your overwhelming top five choices were rebuilding the economy, ending the war, pursuing alternative energy, providing health care for all Americans, and restoring the Constitution.
We’re ready to do everything we can to move forward on these important issues — but some right-wing obstructionists will be fighting back just as hard.
One of the first fights will be around President Obama’s moves to restore the constitution. Our featured action this week targets Senator John Cornyn (R-TX). Cornyn is leading the charge to block the confirmation of Eric Holder, President Obama’s Attorney General nominee. His rationale? Sen. Cornyn objects to the fact that Holder will not rule out prosecuting Bush Administration officials for enaging in illegal torture.
Some of the most important votes of this Congress will be more under the radar — particularly those votes taking place at the Committee or Subcommittee level. Over the coming months, we’ll be sure to e-mail you when your representative or one of your senators has an upcoming committee vote that could make a big difference. (We’re also beefing up our mobile activism, but I’ll tell you more about that next week.)
The e-mails will likely be short and sweet, and tell you whether the bill or amendment or official in question is:
     or   
 
November 4th was only the beginning. Our work is needed now more than ever to ensure right-wing obstructionists don’t stand in the way of President Obama’s progressive agenda.
Click here to tell Sen. Cornyn to stand up for justice, not torture — and end his efforts to block Eric holder’s nomination as the next Attorney General.
Thank you for working to build a better world.
