Bailout shot down
Here’s the vote tally in the House for the bailout bill vote, which was earlier rejected. Send a note of thanks to your congressman if he/she voted it down, and a note to the rest that they won’t be getting your support in November.
After the vote a White House spokesman came on TV ginning up fear about an economic collapse. Too bad. This method of rescuing the economy is socialism and should be rejected. Perhaps most appalling is that other, free-market options aren’t even being considered by the boneheads running this country. How about a capital gains tax cut? How about less regulation, since regulation is what caused this problem? It’s as though our leaders want either more power or they want a collapse so they can say, “Told you so.” Screw ’em. I’d rather take a collapse than to hand over more power and money to the corrupt morons who caused this problem.
