What Could Make Our Congressmen and Senators Do It?

Here's a letter I just send to several dozen Congressmen and Senators:

When calls and letters are running 98% AGAINST BAILOUTS, RADICAL NEW SPENDING PROGRAMS, and other FOOLISH INTERVENTIONS in our FREE MARKETS in order to "save" banks and investment firms, what could possibly cause a CONGRESSMAN or SENATOR to turn against his or her constituents?

Perhaps the fact that (according to the Center for Responsive Politics) the fact that the securities and investment industry contributed $53 million to congressional and presidential candidates in the 2008 election cycle. Congressmen who voted in FAVOR of the initial bailout (Sept 2008) had received 54% MORE MONEY in campaign contributions from banks and securities firms than had those who voted AGAINST the bill.

Blessings on those who were willing -- and CONTINUE to be willing -- to STAND AGAINST this dangerous and damaging foolishness! The rest of you should be ASHAMED!

What are YOU going to tell them?

Who was it, again, that people on Capitol Hill were calling "greedy" and "selfish" again? Was it those folks on "Wall Street" that the Capitol Hill "pot" were calling "black"?
