Darrell Issa (Congressman from California’s 49th District) wants to hear from electronic cigarette users about how the FDA wastes taxpayer money on litigation.
Take this opportunity to give the government the news on how the FDA has been treating e-cigarette users!
DarrellIssa What do you want from your government? @ msg me with your answer, and I appreciate an RT so we can hear as many views as possible. Thank you
Darrell Issa was appointed head of the Congressional Oversight Committee last year. Here is a description of what the committee is from their website:
“The Committee on Oversight and Government Reform has legislative jurisdiction over the District of Columbia, the government procurement process, federal personnel systems, the Postal Service and other matters. Our primary responsibility, however, is oversight of virtually everything government does – from national security to homeland security grants, from federal workforce policies to regulatory reform and reorganization authority, from information technology procurements at individual agencies to government-wide data security standards.As the Committee on Oversight and Government Reform, we will work with our colleagues in the minority to exercise effective oversight over the federal government and will work proactively to investigate and expose waste, fraud, and abuse.

More from @TreeceVapes:
Not long after Issa’s appointment, he announced what was essentially his “hit list” of government organizations, and the FDA was on it. Not long after that, Josh Sharfstein resigned as FDA Deputy Commissioner, and there’s been some speculation that his resignation was a direct response to Issa’s appointment (i.e., perhaps a sign that Sharfstein feared Issa).
Here is a sample tweet that @TreeceVapes did to the congressman:
@DarrellIssa FDA wastes taxpayer money on litigation (despite losing 2X) and misinformation campaign about e-cigarettes. Please help us!
This is a perfect opportunity to let the government know how we feel and to stop being bullied. Tweet DarrellIssa and let your voice be heard!
