Do you know how they voted?

Do you know how your representative voted on the bailout in October?
http://www.senate.gov/legislative/LIS/roll_call_lists/roll_call_vote_cfm.cfm?congress=110&session=2&vote=00213
A vote of "Yea" means approve of bailout

Do you know how your representative voted on the bailout last week?
http://clerk.house.gov/evs/2009/roll027.xml
A vote of "Nay" means approve of bailout (motion to block bailout)

Have you bothered to contact them to let them know how you feel about the votes?

My letter went out in November. Along with the email. My next one goes out today.

  • People need to look at their own State websites. Most have direct links to what and how their elected officials voted on!!!

  • i didnt know how mine voted...but i knew they would vote opposite of what i would want b/c they always vote against what i want. the ppl in power from/in my state are not who i voted for (cept the govenor).

    I didn't spell anything, that's the government's website, and those aren't senators, they're representatives.
