With the votes of three Republicans (Snow, Collins, & Specter) the recovery & jobs bill has passed. All other Republicans chose to take themselves out of the mix. Many of you were not represented in this plan for America. Tennessee has two Republican senators who have the best interests of the wealthy at heart. One continued to call the Recovery Plan a "spending bill", assuming I suppose as he always does, that Tennesseans are just plain stupid. OF COURSE, IT'S FULL OF SPENDING...IT IS A SPENDING BILL...THAT IS THE WHOLE POINT! Calls were made, emails, and snail mails sent and still Corker and Alexander show absolutely no interest in helping the average citizen of Tennessee...however, if you are rich, you can count on these two.
I will continue to contact these senators. If Pres. Obama can continue to try to compromise, negotiate with Republicans after the pathetically political show they have just put on, then I will support him and continue to let the elected officials know what my thoughts and feelings are. After all, is that not what a true Patriot would do?
Letting your reps. know you appreciate their vote. Keep working at reaching the White House by phone, right wingers are trying to tie up the lines and they are doing a pretty good job, I have been trying for three days to get thru, no luck yet. So I continue to use emails and snail mail.
