A brief message to Congress...
I am very dissapointed in all of the Republican congressmen and women who today had their votes bought with polictical capital. They have abandoned their constituents' clearly expressed desires and opinions and set our nation up for an even greater credit crisis down the road.
I am not even as upset by the yes vote today as I am at how easy it was for the Senate to buy the necessary votes from the House Republicans by waving the right amount of bacon in front of their fat greedy little faces.
I REALLY hope some of these people pay for this error in judgment by being elected out of their respective offices. Representative Democracy has only ONE feasible recourse for a rogue representative and that is to replace them at the end of their term. Now even if that happens of course it will be pointless to replace a lizard with another lizard (although it will feel good to see the first lizard leave and wish he'd listened better to his voters). We need a real change and that will not happen with either of the current two primary candidates. If you want to really see change... you have to vote for it!!!
