Bail out turncoats

If you are like 90% of the country, you are still a bit peeved about our elected officials pushing the bail-out bill (which may approach $1,000,000,000,000 - that is a trillion dollars). Want your own "vote'em out" banner for your site, visit the Constiutent Response Team site.

Thanks for publishing this!

We need to focus on "un-electing" those Senators and Representatives who voted "yes" for the Bailout. They were willing to ignore the 90% of us who were against the Bailout, clearly demonstrating that they do NOT represent us. Further, the Bailout is not working--and these corrupt companies are using our tax dollars instead to pay for executive bonuses, junkets, and to buy each other out. It's got to stop--and that mean getting rid of those who voted "yes."
A new group called the Constituent Response Team has been working to do just that. 

CRT has put together a Bailout Vote Map that makes it easy (as a mouse click) to find out how your Senators and Representatives voted. Tell all your family and friends about it, so they can find out how their Representative and Senators voted before they cast their ballot on Tuesday. 

The Constituent Response Team has also just published pre-customized web banners and ads targeted at those who voted "yes" for the Bailout. You can easily paste these ads onto your website or blog (or social networking site) using simple embedding code (provided off course). (Added benefit: no need to worry about postal regulations or newspaper deadlines!) If your Senator or Congress member voted for the Bailout, a customized web-banner probably already exists to assist you in getting the word out to vote against them.

If your readers are interested in either, check out Constituent Response at http://www.constituentresponse.com . The Bailout Vote Map is on the main page; the "Vote 'no" on incumbents who voted 'yes'" ads are under the Host CRT Ads link.

P.S. You can easily adjust the width of the displayed ad by changing the number in the widths tag of the embedding code. By default it is set to 510, but you can make it smaller to fit your column. Thanks again.
