I hate the treasury bailout proposal. Do you?

Why You Should Hate the Treasury Bailout Proposal

Quote from a Congressional staffer which I copied from naked capitalism:

I know that people are often cynical about contacting their representatives. Frankly, they should be. Most days, the overwhelming volume of constituent contacts is form letter e-mails, pre-printed postcards, blast faxes, and automated phone calls. It’s easy for genuine individual requests to get lost in the sea of astroturf (fake grassroots) campaigns.

But, on this issue, the calls and e-mails are making a difference. Members and staffers are talking about it in the halls and in
meetings. The volumes are big (although as big as when the NRA or AARP mobilizes their members) but they’re all individual. And they’re running 99-to-1 against. If you read the capitol hill press (Roll Call, Politico, The Hill, CQ, National Journal), you can see the developing dissent among the rank-and-file on both sides. A lot of that is beign driven by the calls and e-mails from back home. Keep it up!

Come on, people! I’ve let my Congressional reps know what I think. Contact yours TODAY!

  1. Thanks for the additional kick in the butt to get me going. I was at my Congressman’s website last night, but didn’t get anything written. Your e-mail was just what I needed to get my groove on.


  2. I really don’t like the idea of a bailout, and was pretty happy when it said they were deadlocked.I’d really love for them to change the SOX laws instead. Why should the gov’t profit off of these mistakes?


  3. I am trying to muddle my way through understanding the whole mess. I do know enough to know it is a horrible mess and not one that we should be involved with.The Ron Paul letter was really helpful too.
