Sen. Dianne Feinstein (D-Calif.) voted yea despite receiving 85,000 calls against it -- out of 91,000 total calls.
This was just reported on the John and Ken show, KFI, Los Angeles AM radio 640.
In addition, this is also being reported on several other websites such as this one.
So much for our Republic.
The media has been perpetrating a huge lie all day that the constituents have changed their minds and have been urging their reps to vote for it!
hey if they want it, let them pay for it themselves
I would love to see the numbers for every Senator.
Why couldn’t they pass legislation that piece mealed things? Durning that coarse of time they could have made a more rash chose and seen what results came of the piecemeal prospects.....
The FEAR is inciting action that I think is inappropriate.
Do you know how they found out how many calls, I would love to check other’s.
I’d rather have a Republic, but they didn’t even read the Bill.
Why pass a imperfect bill? I’m gonna send in a ‘imperfect’ tax return this year.
that’s our own difi,
the wife of a billionaire,
member of the the “democratic” party.
I heard one say it was now about 55% (of callers) in favor as people are seeing local governments unable to build hospitals because there is no money to borrow....
So we kill it in the house.
We’re all to stupid to understand. Our representatives know best. /Sarcasm
They all disgust me!
I heard a congressman say that his calls were 50/50. Half said “no” and the other half said “Hell no”. LOL
The Senate leaders, Majority and Minority, just came out to praise the heroic efforts of Chris Dodd in crafting the new bailout. This reassured me that I still have an iron stomach: nothing even tried to come up.
Has anyone else heard about someone offering exactly five hundred forty-six “Class A” hunting license for a season starting tonight and running through November three? I’m kind of beyond the age of going hunting when the snow blows, but I might consider it while the weather holds. But for five hundred forty-six what?
The have proved what Americans want, or what they support, matters not.
Now will people start believing this was NOT about the economy and ALL ABOUT A POLITICAL SET-UP from the get-go?
Dems will kill the economy to pump up Obama’s numbers.
This bill will get killed in the House, Dow will drop another K and the opposition candidate’s numbers will rise in response.
Well the fight ain’t over and the skeleton lady (Pelousy) hasn’t sung yet.
Do you think Feinstein cares about the calls that came in? They just looked at them as a nuisance.
By the way, she will win handily in California the next time she runs because all the calls and all the BS mean nothing when it comes to the voting booth.
This is sick but, it is true.
Here' s one of them:
Notice what I highlighted that Feinstein said.To: Arkinsaw
Feinstein said her office had fielded 91000 calls and 86000 were against the bill. She went on to say they just dont understand it so I am going to vote for it!
Typical senatorial hubris. Obviously, she in not part of the 1/3 of the Senate up for re-election in 34 days!
What a self-absorbed traitor to her constituents and this country.
It certainly show how politicians don't care what the people want, they vote their politics and pocketbooks.
