The way lawmakers in Washington view our Constitutional rights is funny. One day they will bang the table saying we can’t allow the slightest erosion in what our forefathers gave us and the next day they will help big business blatantly steal the Constitution.

Actually, I don’t think this is funny at all. I think it is frightening because it appears our rights are for sale to the highest bidder.

Right now, Congress is trying to pass a law that would limit our ability to hold pharmaceutical companies responsible for hurting people with dangerous drugs or medical devices.

The proposed law, HR 1215, takes “power away from local juries to decide individual cases” and gives that power to politicians in the pocket of Big Pharma.

The law would cap compensation for things like paralysis, trauma and ending your chance to have children at $250,000.

So now you know what some lawmakers think your life is worth.

I ask you to join me in the fight to keep our Constitutional right to a jury trial — a right given to us by our forefathers. You can make your voice heard by going to the website Take Justice Back.

Take Justice Back is a grassroots campaign to restore accountability, promote safety and ensure Americans have access to justice. The fact is, our environment is cleaner, our medicine is better and our cars are safer today, thanks to Americans who stood up to big corporations and held them accountable in court.

Visit the Take Justice Back website and send a message to Congress. In will only take a couple of minutes, but it could save your Constitutional rights.
