When the rats invade Congress, the citizens revolt!

When a Congressional reporter breaks the news that "Rats have invaded the toilet bowls" of the halls of Congress, it sparks a national news frenzy. Activists see the rats upending "business as usual," and turn the invasion into a symbol against the lobbyists who hold Congress in their sway. A massive citizen uprising follows that threatens to sweep Congress clean of Wall Street's chokehold of corruption — but the corporate titans have ways of fighting back!

The Day the Rats Vetoed Congress is Ralph Nader's fable of struggle and strategy, tenacity and triumph for our troubled times. But more than just a story, it can also serve as a "how to" guide to effect political change — from a pied piper who’s done it time and time again. Gleefully and generously illustrated by famed political cartoonist Mr. Fish, pulling no punches in bringing his stunning graphic sensibilities to bear on this modern tale of vice and virtue. The Day the Rats Vetoed Congress is both a fable of citizen action and a call to advocacy.

You may just laugh yourself serious.
