Below is a complete list of all the votes for the American Recovery and Reinvestment Act of 2009 (Economic Stimulus) that is being signed into law. I hope that you can look up your Senators and your Representative and see how they voted on this 1,434 page bill that nobody read – yes, NOBODY.
This is appalling. Not only did they not read it, many of them went against their constituents desires. I’ve yet to see a report from anywhere that says that any member of Congress had their constituents want this package. I know at the time I got the facts below on opencongress.org, it was 120 ayes and 618 nays of people that visited the site.
I hope you think this is bullshit. I hope that if you have anyone that voted aye on this that is representing you that you vote them out, or at the very least tell them that you are pissed off. No politician should put such a bill through without reading it.
