Kill the bailout: Operation Hold The Line

The massive, unprecedented trillion-dollar-plus (remember, they just pulled the figure from thin air) Bailout Crap Sandwich With Sugar On Top returns to the House. A vote is expected on Friday. I keep hearing and reading that public opposition to this rushed-through monstrosity has “softened” in the wake of the Senate’s approval last night. I’m not sure why the bailout pimps keep touting that talking point when countless Americans trying to express their vehement disapproval can’t even get through the FUBAR House e-mail system!

Now is the time for the fiscal conservative House Republicans who voted against the bailout on Monday (before it ballooned to four times its size) to buckle down. Refuse to be bought off. Refuse to be co-opted by the Orwellian “It’s a ‘rescue,’ not a bailout” propaganda ministers. Refuse to be pressured and panicked and bullied by the Apocalyptics. Refuse to submit to Pelosi/Frank/Paulson’s collective will. Refuse to flip-flop. Refuse to swallow.

The bailout peddlers need 12 Republicans to turn. The payoffs are in the works:

“We need 100 Republican votes to pass this,” House Majority Leader Steny Hoyer told reporters at a Wednesday afternoon briefing.

House leaders “are bringing in the small business lobby and the banking lobby to buy the 12 Republican votes they need,” said Bob Borosage, the co-director of the progressive group Campaign for America’s Future.

To quote the great Lady Thatcher: “This is no time to go wobbly.”

The People’s House needs to hear from the people. Get your fingers dialing for Operation Hold The Line. Because so many of you asked, I’ve compiled the phone numbers for each and every one of the House GOP members who voted no on Monday. They need to hear from you again.
