Justice for Uncompensated Survivors Today (JUST) Act of 2017
Speaker of the House Paul Ryan intends to suspend the usual congressional procedures and allow voting on the Senate Bill S.447! Voting can take place on Tuesday (April 24, 2018). This will probably happen under “suspension of the rules”, and the debate may be limited to 40 minutes and congressmen will not be able to offer any amendments. In order for the bill to be approved, a 2/3 majority of all votes will be required.
Please promptly deliver by telephone the message below to your Member of the United States House of Representatives.
As a member of the POLISH AMERICAN CONGRESS and constituent of Congressman/ Congresswoman ____________, I request that on April 24 he/she should vote against S. 447, because it is unfair to Poland, an important and dependable NATO ally, which was a victim of Nazi Germany, and not a villain. Moreover, I request a roll call vote on this bill that calls on Poland to pay extravagant compensation for crimes against private property on conquered Polish territory perpetrated by Nazi Germany and the communists during the World War II era. Compensation for these crimes against private property should be paid by Berlin, and Moscow, not by Warsaw. Furthermore, Poland sent a low level delegation to the Prague Conference and never considered herself bound by the Terezin Declaration.
Please inform Congressman/Congresswoman _______________ that voting in favor of S.447 would reward the brutal legacy of Hitler and Stalin, an inescapable point of overt information concerning the period 1939 – 1989 on which all informed Americans should agree without exception.
Don’t reward and honor the legacy of Hitler and Stalin by voting in favor of S.447!
Please telephone your Member of the House of Representatives with this message on Saturday April 21 at their District offices and on Monday and Tuesday April 23-24 at their Washington office.
