What is abusive about wanting to know the voting records of the people we elected to represent us and who do not?

One third of the Congress and part of the Senate is up for relection in 2010. Be as mad at voting time as youare now vote ever incumbant out, send he message that we have had enough.

They reap the rewards, pass the cost of doing business down to the american tax payers by increased taxes on everything we buy and to the future generations yet to be born. AIG was a ponsi scheme larger than Bernard Madoff in respect to the mortgage insurance that was sold off as triple A Bonds. The culprits; Rating Agencies, Security and Exchange Commission and lack of proper regulations are being rewarded by passing the buck to the American public. To deny an increase in the Social Security benefits for 2010 just puts all of the above in it’s right perspective. Americans WAKE UP!
