I have to say I am trully amazed that the House of Represenatatives were able to read a 600 page document in a day and approve it?

My question is are they really reading it. Have any of the previous Congressmen read any of the bills that have been sent to them? Or are we a rubber stamp Congress? Whatever you want- here's my signature. What happened to accountability? I am talking about all parties from the President down-past and present!

In my opinion we need leaders that care about the United States and her people. Representatives that give a hoot and not just want to pass their agendas and see how much money they can make at the taxpaper's expense while they are in or out of office.

All this money will have to be repaid.  You know what that means-higher taxes! It usually does!

Pat:  I guess you didn't get the memo telling all about the speed-reading course all of our wonderful congressional members take before they assume office.  How wonderful, huh ?

I'm sure they have an agreement with any journalist that wants an interview that they will not be asked the question:

Mr. Representative:  Did you read the bill before voting YES?

Hey, Pat. I don't think they actually get it. Poll the public and see what they/we want. I can tell you I don't want this package. Thanks, Jim

I agree with you 100%, Pat!  I noticed you're just 'round the corner from us!  We should network/link up!  What's your web address?  I just wrote an article titled, "Is Congress seeking to break up REO listing agent monoplies?"  Check it out at!
