Tell Congress to Support Local Christian Radio

A bill that could put thousands of media outlets in the hands of churches, schools, and community groups is very close to passing - but it won't get there without your help.  Take action now to expand Christian radio.

The Senate was ready to pass a bill to expand access to low power, noncommercial, local FM radio stations to communities nationwide.  But just a couple of Senators have blocked the bill - and could prevent it from passing unless we call now.

A no-brainer for bipartisanship

As he prepares to take on the role of House Speaker, Rep. John Boehner (R-Ohio) has pledged to bring a new era of bipartisanship to Congress. "I think the best leaders are very good listeners," said Boehner in October. "Because if you are not listening, you cannot lead."

President Obama responded in kind: "Let's go ahead and start making some progress on the things that we do agree on," he said, "And we can continue to have a strong and healthy debate about those areas where we don't."

Rand Paul's father, Congressman Ron Paul, a medical doctor like his son, has been on a similar campaign in the U.S. House of Representatives for a couple decades.  And Representative Paul just got many reinforcements elected with the help of Tea Party activists and supporters.  Congresswoman Michele Bachmann from Minnesota has already formed a Tea Party Caucus in the House of Representatives...

House Dems Reject GOP Proposal to Defund NPR

House Democrats on Thursday rejected a GOP proposal to cut federal funding to National Public Radio, which has been under fire ever since it sacked Juan Williams last month.

The proposal, which was the winning entry this week in YouCut -- an anti-government spending program started by House Republicans earlier this year -- failed by a vote of 239-171.
