Today, Rep. Joe Pitts (PA-16), working with his House Republican colleagues, announced the new America Speaking Out social media website. The website is a new tool for the American people to propose and debate national legislative priorities.
Rep. Pitts' statement follows:
"Many Americans are concerned that Washington isn't listening to them. The current leadership in Congress has used their power to push through unpopular legislation like the healthcare and cap and trade bills. I can certainly understand the frustration and concern that was shown at townhall meetings across the country last summer.
"House Republicans want to listen and that's why we've launched the America Speaking Out website, a new social media tool. This new site will allow Americans to propose and debate new ideas to reinvigorate our country.
"This year our party has offered substantive alternatives to big government solutions pushed by Democratic leadership. While we stand firm in our principles, we want to hear directly from the American people about how Washington should work. Solutions to America's problems don't come exclusively from inside the Beltway."
