Bailout bill fails; the people are having an impact‏

September 29, 2008

Dear T. Scott,

Thank you for taking action to stop the bailout. We had a major breakthrough today when the House of Representatives voted down the bill by a 228 to 205 margin. This is a real opportunity to keep pushing for more reforms.

Please call Congress at 202-224-3121 and demand -- "Bailout homeowners, not the bank owners." The U.S. needs to build its economy from the ground up not from the top down. Tell Congress to reconsider this bill and develop a bill that builds the economy not bails out speculators who undermine the economy.

We have made a lot of progress since Bush-Paulsen came forward with their 2 page blank check. The more than 100 page bill is moving in our direction but not far enough. If this bill is to pass it needs to put emphasis to ensure homeowners have their mortgages rewritten so they can afford to stay in their homes rather than lose them to the banks.

This populist revolt is heartening. Let's keep up the pressure. Call 202-224-3121 and go to www.FreshAirCleanPolitics.net and send a letter to Congress. Tell your friends to do the same.

The people are having an impact.
