ALERT: Please Call as soon as possible.
Congress is trying to solidify its control of Nevada and other Western
States. YOU can help stop them.
Harry Reid wants to end all Indian claims to BLM land. His bill, S958 would
pay $20,000 to every Shoshone in return for their land, which he wants to
steal. Someone???? has told the Indians that the $20,000 would be tax free.
That, as usual is a lie. Only $2,000 is tax free, the remaining $18k would
raise their marginal tax rates and reduce or eliminate S.S., welfare and
other transfer payments.
Please call Sen. Ben Nighthorse Campbell and Sen. Daniel Inouye and tell them
to use their membership in the Indian Affairs Committee to stop S958 from
ever reaching the floor of the Senate. Harry Reid has set up a phony vote
today amongst Shoshones, which he intends to use as a hammer to get his bill
passed. If accomplished, it would fortify his position that the FEDERAL
government owns 90% of Nevada.
Senators Ben Nighthorse Campbell from Colorado and Daniel Inouye from Hawaii
