Here is a complete list of the Representatives that voted “no” to the largest tax increase in the history of the US. If your rep is on this list, make sure you thank them for supporting the Constitution, and standing for the principles on which this country was founded.
If your rep is on the list just above that one, the list that voted yes…well, next election time, we need to do everything we can to make sure they lose their seat. Volunteer for their opponent’s campaign, send money to their opponent – whatever it takes. Now we’re off to the Senate, and I’m not going to lie to you, the concept of relying on the Senate to actually defend the Constitution and do the right thing makes me want to buy a bunch of canned goods and ammo.
For my Hoosiers: Neither of our Senators are an automatic “no” on this issue, although they should be. Manufacturing, coal, and “heavy industry” are going to be gutshot by this bill, and Indiana’s economy relies significantly on these industries. We need to burn up the phone lines to Lugar and Bayh to make sure they don’t support this legislation. If Evan Bayh ever wants to sit in The Big Chair in Washington, he needs to understand that the route does not include passing the biggest tax increase in American history. Here’s Senator Bayh’s contact page. Keep it clean and smart, and focus on the Hoosier jobs it’s going to destroy. Here’s the contact page for Senator Lugar.
