Dear Members of Congress that voted yes for The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009,
We are told over and over again, don't sign anything you haven't read and don't understand. As a real estate agent when I am at the closing table with a client it is my job to make sure they understand what they are signing. If they don't I haven't done my job.
Today the House, and it looks like the Senate will as well, voted to pass a 1071 page bill less than 24 hours after they received it.
I only have one question for those of you that voted in favor of this bill today. Did you read it?
If you did not, how could you vote yes? This is the largest spending bill in the history of the United States and you didn't even take the time to know what you are voting for.
When time comes for you to run for re- election I will again ask you this question. Did you read The American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 before you voted in favor of it? If you answer No, I did not read it, I will campaign for your opponent no matter who that person is. You were elected by the people to represent us. How can you represent the people you serve if you don't even take the time to understand what you are voting for?
I'm sure George Washington read the Constitution before he signed it. Don't you think you should read the bill that will change the country before you sign it?
