Lame Duck
Updated On: Jan 20, 2011

Webster defines a lame duck as an elected official continuing to hold office between an election and

the inauguration of a successor. This results in a delay of legislation that could potentially benefit the

working middle class.

As the next elected officials are sworn in, we the voters need to hold our representatives' feet to the

fire. We need to get out of the mindset that once the election is over our voices become silent. As new

legislation is introduced, we must make sure that it is beneficial for our brotherhood and provides fair

and equal opportunities to those who work hard. The best way to make our voices heard is by calling

our representatives or writing letters to our local newspapers.
