People this is the time to keep pressure on your members in the House of Representatives as they are they only ones who may be able to check Obama and the Senate some from taking more and more corrosive actions against us.
If the following bill is passed “the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to set it’s own fees and spend the revenue collected from those fees. Currently, Congress sets the fees and appropriates funds for the USPTO.” This would then set the precedent for all departments and agencies to set their own rules and fees and collect in essence their own taxes and funding! We would have mini federal governments within the huge federal government and absolutely NO WAY TO STOP these non-elected creatures from ruling over us. They could do anything they want in our name. So get on the horn and make your congressman know who you are and how you feel and then get in touch with him often. You might also remember that now just about all government workers are members of unions!!! The creatures in the tiny offices while watching dirty internet sites will just calmly and faithfully follow the instructions of union leaders like Trumpka and Andy Stern. You might recall that Andy Stern was the most frequent visitor to Obama’s White House and Trumpka proudly boasted that he talked to the White House on a daily basis. Keep all these interlocking facts in mind and you will understand just how infiltrated our government is and how much at risk our nation and our American way of life and freedoms are.
It is always wise to click on any referred sites or articles (BLUE) to learn more about an issue. BB
Action Alert: Patent Reform No Small Issue
Congress passes numerous bills every year that receive little, if any, media coverage. These “small ball” issues often contain pork spending or, in this case, a complete a transfer of power from Congress to unelected bureaucrats.
This bill would allow the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) to set it’s own fees and spend the revenue collected from those fees. Currently, Congress sets the fees and appropriates funds for the USPTO.
This framework of checks and balances is crucial.
Congress must maintain the ability to conduct oversight and hold government agencies accountable. Transferring the power from Congress empowers the USPTO and makes oversight and accountability on the important issue of patent issuance more difficult.
Government efficiency should not come at the expense empowering bureaucrats and undermining the ability of elected Representatives to keep executive branch power in check.
