I wrote to my Representative from my district. He promises a reply. We shall see.
I will hammer my Senators with missives along the same lines when they also vote to bail out the crooks on Saturday!! (How did they get these do-nothing know-nothings to stay in DC for a Saturday vote anyway? Do they think they can hide behind a weekend and no one will find out how they voted?) They will vote to bail them out, I know they will. It is already a done deal. They have to hide the fraud somehow.
I am with you, Greg. This whole thing makes me want to spit. People and things I used to respect make me want to spit now. This country has turned into a gigantic cesspool of corruption. I will vote against any one of these faux legislators with their "yes" votes and urge everyone I know to do the same. Fall housecleaning is going to be brutal this year.
This e-mail is to let you know that, based on your vote on H R 3221, I don't think that I will be able to vote for you again in the future.
Privatizing profit and socializing losses is not American. Bailing out private businesses is not a governmental function yet we have (so far) bailed out Bear Stearns and now Freddie and Fannie. You have voted to bail them out with my money. I find that irresponsible in an American legislator. However, I would not have been adverse to you pledging any sum of your own funds to bail them out if you found it so vitally important to do so.
If there was some urgent reason for you to vote against me on this issue (other than the herd mentality of party lines) I would be interested in knowing it.
Respectfully, blah, blah, blah.
