They Don't Work For You

Stirred by the U.S. Senate's failure to pass an expansion on background checks last month, a group of three web designers with the Brooklyn firm Guts & Glory expressed their frustration by creating a website that has turned into a viral campaign over the past two weeks.

The website, TheyDontWorkForYou.org, pairs all 46 senators who voted against the amendment with victims of gun violence. It encourages readers to call the senators, tweet at them, or post messages on their Facebook pages.

After launching on April 22, the campaign has spread through different advocacy organizations, such as Moms Demand Action. It has also earned the firm congratulations from organizations like the Michael Bloomberg-backed Mayors Against Illegal Guns.

  1. In one sense, that's correct. The senator from Montana doesn't directly work for a child from California.

    But what Baucus and the other senators who voted the right way did was to protect our rights. That's the best way to work for all of us.

    Enjoy your sappy emotionalism. You see how far it gets you.

    Actually they DO work for us. They are doing the job VOTERS sent them there to do which represent US.

    Obama wants them voted out. Like the "they deserve a vote" rant, he got the vote, it just wasn't the one he wanted. He may not like the mid term votes either.

  3. I think I'll contact my senators and thank them once more for doing the job they were elected to do.
