Washington, DCU.S. Third District Congressman Frank Lucas is proud to join his Republican colleagues to announce the creation of America Speaking Out.  America Speaking Out is a project to create a new agenda for House Republicans that involves the American people in the decision making process.

“The Democratic leadership in Congress and President Obama’s administration have repeatedly failed to listen to the will of the American people,” stated Lucas.  “Between the incredibly unpopular government run health care law, the job killing cap-and-tax legislation, or the multiple taxpayer funded bailouts, the American people have had enough and deserve to have their voices heard.  America Speaking Out will allow just that – an opportunity for every American to share their ideas, express their opinions, and actually be heard by their members of Congress.”

In order to reach the largest number of people possible, House Republicans set up an America Speaking Out website.  There, people can post comments on proposed policies, interact with other people across the nation, and share new ideas – no matter their political affiliation.  These ideas and information will be incorporated with the Republican principles of smaller federal government, lower taxes, more government accountability, and family values to create real solutions that will help to solve the problems our country is currently facing and restore the broken bonds of trust between the American people and their elected leaders.

“In my 50 annual town hall meetings, many of you have told me that you agree with my votes against the government takeover of health care and the bailouts, but ask me what my Republican colleagues stand for – not just against,” stated Lucas.  “America Speaking Out gives you a chance to let me and my colleagues know what you want to see changed and to incorporate those ideas and opinions into a set of real solutions that will create a change that Americans actually want.  I would like to encourage every Oklahoman – no matter you political affiliation – to visit America Speaking Out and let their voices be heard.  This is your government, so we need your input to make it work for you.” 

To join in the nationwide effort, you can visit www.AmericaSpeakingOut.com.  Although a set time has not yet been decided, the website will be in use for several months before the full agenda is announced.
