So did your taxpayer voted representative represent you today in Congress by voting for what their constituents felt regarding the Bailout Bill? Whether you agree with their vote, or you do not agree with their vote, make sure to let them know how you feel by calling them. Remember, American voters put them in their place. Those same votes can keep them there, or remove them. And remember, these are YOUR AMERICAN tax dollars at work. And remind them that making a decision is not a problem, it's being able to look in the mirror and live with the decision you made.
So, I guess when you can't pay your mortgage, since the House and Senate are so good at bailing out Corporations and banks, you can call them to bail you out, right? You, the taxpayer and the voter.
If you are a resident of Arizona, California, Florida, Illinois, Massachusetts or New York, and you were opposed to this Bailout Bill, I highly suggest that you take a close look at how your representatives voted, as these states carried the most weight with "Yeas" for this vote.
As for all of the members of the House and the Senate who voted for this Bailout Bill, who did not represent what the taxpayers wanted, they need to remember that these same taxpayers are also voters. And to coin a phrase, most recently used, the party may be over for you at your next election.
