Tonight the Senate passed the bailout bill 74-25 (with Kennedy not voting).
The bill swelled to 451 pages. Want to guess how many Senators actually read the entire bill? My money is on zero.

Millions wrote and called to say No! and still the Senate said Yes? It is time for a housecleaning! Time to show them that they work for Main Street, not Wall Street.
Based on quick analysis, it looks like there are 2-4 Senators who voted Yes who are in tight races, and 3 or 4 more who are vulnerable.
In the House, the analysis is similar, 7 or 8 vulnerable races where a little bit of influence might make all the difference.
Targeting these so-called representatives of the people, with print and radio ads highlighting their betrayal, could really make an impact on their chances for re-election — and put the fear of constituency back into the Washington elite.
Are you interested in making it happen? There isn’t much time before the election, so it will take funds and effort. Can you participate by offering time, skills or funds?
