Those Who Voted No
The Senate voted tonight on that steroid-laden bailout rescue plan. I do believe action needs to be taken, but this is the wrong approach. Here’s a list of those who voted no:
Nelson (FL) (D)
One of my senators, Wayne Allard who isn’t running for re-election and is otherwise worthless, voted no. I’m also very disappointed that both McCain and Obama voted yes. This just feels like a sell out to the Wall Street wizards and lobbyists at the expense of the rest of us.
I’m really not all that impressed that it included a bunch of stuff congress needs to pass as stand alone bills, like fixing the alternative minimum tax. I also wonder how many senators actually read the entire bill before they voted.
I’m hoping cooler heads prevail in the House and they send something vastly better back to the Senate.
