Hoyer, Blunt hopeful of progress on rescue bill
"WASHINGTON - Two House leaders said Wednesday headway is being made toward getting the $700 billion financial industry rescue bill through Congress, thanks partly to a provision increasing insurance for people's deposits. President Bush planned to call lawmakers asking for their support ahead of a crucial Senate vote Wednesday night."
"House Republican Whip Roy Blunt of Missouri agreed that prospects for passage have improved, and he said he was particularly heartened by indications the legislation has become more appealing to constituents back home."(emphasis mine)
Has a bailout REALLY become "more appealing" to you now?
NOW is the time to make clear where you stand... NO BAILOUT OF ANY KIND.

FYI: Here's a copy of my message to good ol' Roy Boy:
The AP just released an article saying that you were "...particularly heartened by indications the legislation has become more appealing to constituents back home."
You and I know that isn't true - far from it. Especially now that the shock is over, and the stock market rebounded (all as expected), people are AGAINST any sort of bailout - no matter if you cloak in terms of "rescue" or hide it in other bills.
Listen to your constituents and represent them as your oath demands. NO BAILOUTS of ANY kind. Corporations that make bad decisions must be allowed to fail - no matter what the temporary hardship. That is capitalism. Bailouts are nothing but a combination of a socialist/facist nightmare, and are as un-American as the Kremlin and the Red Star. You should know that.
