PLUS the book -

How the Rats Re-Formed Congress.

It's a Fable about an invasion of rats in Congress that triggers a peoples’
political revolt. It begins when a Congressional reporter breaks a bizarre
story: “Rats have invaded the toilet bowls” of the Speaker of the House and
the Minority Leader. A national news frenzy ensues.


Activists seize on the breaking story to organize for a populist agenda.
Spontaneous rallies erupt. The activists see the rats upending “business as
usual” routines on Capitol Hill as a symbol against lobbyists and corporate
Congress.


Millions flood into the nation's capitol to take back Congress from Wall Street.
Congressional offices are deluged with citizen rallies and meetings. Members are
challenged in primaries. Incumbents join the movement.


Wall Street and its lobbyists warn of economic collapse and mass layoffs if the
people's agenda passes Congress. Corporate front groups are formed to disrupt
peaceful crowds. Despite that, corporate lobbyists and think tanks can’t
overcome the organized will of the determined citizenry.


Ralph Nader is one of the nation's most effective and well-known social critics.
He has raised public awareness and increased government and corporate
accountability. As a young lawyer in 1965 he made headlines with his book Unsafe
at Any Speed, leading to congressional hearings and passage of a series of
life-saving auto safety laws in 1966. His example has inspired a generation of
consumer advocates, citizen activists and public interest attorneys.
