Call and let them know WE DON'T WANT SWEETENERS!!! Americans want a c-l-e-a-n bill. These politicians are not working for us, they are working for themselves again. NO PORK PERIOD! Demand to see the bill before any votes are taken....put it on the Net and in newspapers. Presently the same old gang is still in there ready to grab the money and pay off their cronies - Why are Frank and Dodd still head of their committees? Remove them as part of any bill. If they are not removed, America cannot trust the government to ever do the right thing with this 'bail out bill'. Remove Barney Frank and Christopher Dodd!!!

Hopefully Shelby and Bunning will filibuster long enough to rally the troops.

Take a look at the part of the Bill that calls for mental health parity in insurance.

While good in theory and possibly in practice, paying the premiums for parity in mental health care can be very expensive.

Are they trying to bankrupt companies or price insurance out of the reach of even more of us? (Or simply making sure that their own, obvious needs are covered?)

This is supposed to be an emergency Bill. The Senators should not include extraneous, expensive and potentially harmful mandates that have nothing to do with the “emergency.”

Ironic. In a season where earmarks are a bane, the Senate passes a bailout bill filled with new earmarks for the middle class. Call to have this voted down!

Saxby Chambliss, Graham, Dole, Burr, and a bunch of other RINOs will cave and give the RATS what ever they want. Im afraid this will be even worse than the last bill.

HIGH ALERT Senate bailout vote scheduled tomorrow at approx. 9pm Eastern; shamnesty tactics all over again

MESSAGE TO CONGRESS

It is an outrage that Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are still fronting the bill. Americans are appalled to see the same old insiders salivating to grab a piece of the action for themselves and their cronies. Remove Frank and Dodd now. If Frank and Dodd are not removed, America cannot trust the government to do the right thing. - NO BILL if Barney Frank and Chris Dodd are not removed.

MESSAGE TO CONGRESS

Do NOT legislate a bailout with PORK and SWEETENERS for a select few connected insiders. Americans demand a c-l-e-a-n bill to resolve the problem. NO PORK PERIOD. Americans DEMAND to see the bill before any votes are taken. Americans demand the bill be widely publicized via print and broadcast media....... and on the i-net.

800-965-4701 ----- 800-828-0498 ------ 888-802-1207

I may be a cynic, but don’t be surprised if the stock market tanks today. On Monday, the last two hours got really ugly, and the market can be manipulated. The House members supposedly got calls to pass it after the market tanked. So yesterday the market rebounds, and that may have settled some nerves. Why is the vote scheduled for 9 PM...seems awfully late, did they make any explanation why they’re waiting till the night to vote?

What is “mental health parity”? They are going to force me to become as crazy as them?

What they are trying to do is destroy private medicine. Why? They want national socialist heath care where no one can be treated better than another. It’s equality, not freedom.

Mr. Voinovich,

I know I have contacted your office more in the past 6 months than I ever thought I would NEED too.

Here I am again contacting you. This is not a form letter or mass mailing. This is a ‘joe-6-pack’ person writing you.

I may not understand all the economic/Wall Street mess going on and no one on Capital Hill is really bothering to explain it to me. So, I guess I am supposed to just TRUST congress to do the right thing, except I only trust you all about 9% of the time.

So, I write to you like I would my child. Please don't be offended, but it is how I can explain myself and views.

My kids get an allowance. Sometimes they spend it wisely and other times not so much. Recently my teenage daughter decided to spend all her money with her friends at the mall. Later she was out shopping with me and wanted what I considered an extra and not a need. So, I told her no I would not pay for it. She would have to use her own money. Well, she didn't have any money and begged me to advance her, her allowance.

As a parent in charge of the family treasury I was placed in the position of giving a financially irresponsible teenager a cash advance (bailout) or telling her I would not advance her the money for a fiscally bad decision. Have you ever been in a store and had a 1/2 grown adult pitch a temper-tantrum? I walked away from her. She got nothing.

This number Mr. Paulson has simply pulled out of thin air as an emergency amount is like my teenage daughter. I suspect there is some sort of true need, but what it is ...no one knows, yet. A bill loaded with extras needs to be walked away from. Let them throw their temper tantrum, but until the bill is clean and addresses only the emergency. I ask that Republicans be the fiscal adults here and walk away.

Once the emergency is dealt with we can come back to the core problem and deal with it, not under duress and in a fiscally responsible way.

The vote is scheduled for 9PM, but it could run overtime. It may very well pass in the wee hours of the morning and presented to the American people as a fait accomplie.

Thanks for the ping.

Any Senator who votes for this bailout should be read their Miranda rights.

I’m too depressed to tell you and my insurance won’t pay for my anti-depression meds. But they will pay for Viagra.

Seriously, if a Family doc puts “depression” on the charge sheet for a Medicare patient, we either won’t get paid or get paid a much smaller amount. (I’m not sure what the rule is today, it varies.)

However, nearly every depressed patient is fatigued, has insomnia, generalized aches and pains, and stomach upsets. It’s true, and we get paid.

Perp walk and then tar and feather any $inator or Congre$$it that votes for these terrible bailout plans!

Here is another poll that the $inators/Congre$$its might want to consider before they get tarred and feathered:

Ongoing AT&T/Yahoo poll on the bailout:

http://js.polls.yahoo.com/quiz/quiziframe.php?poll_id=39543

Do you want the $700 billion bailout to be passed? Results
Q. Stunned by a House defeat on Monday, supportive lawmakers along with President Bush are again warning that if the proposed $700 billion bailout plan to buy bad mortgages and other “rotten” bank debts is not passed quickly, America — and the world — is vulnerable to a serious recession. Critics and protesters say the current plan does not include sufficient oversight, and taxpayers should not be put on the hook for the staggering price tag.

What do you think? Should the $700 billion bailout be approved?

Yes. It may not be a perfect plan, but we must take action. 23%

No. I think we need a plan, but this bill still needs work so taxpayers can be protected. 39%

No. I don’t think we need any plan. The markets can right themselves without our intervention. 36%

Not sure/No opinion 3%
