There is a growing minority on Capital Hill, that is questioning the legality of the bail-out legislation. Plain and simple, it’s business as usual with the lobbists hard at work and we are going to get stuck with the tab. Consider the words of Rep. Michael Burgess (R-TX) he said that the only information he has received about the bailout was the talking points used to sell the bill on the American people. Moreover, he states “he has been thrown out of more meetings than humanly possible” because he is trying to dig a little deeper and does not blindly support the bill.
No one can deny that there has been an unprecedented push to spend $700 Billion of the taxpayer’s money without a lot of detail to the American public. Now consider Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur’s words the the American people;
The normal legislative process has been shelved. Only a few insiders are doing the dealing, sounds like insider trading to me. These criminals have so much political power than can shut down the normal legislative process of the highest law making body of this land,” Kaptur concluded.
“We are Constitutionally sworn to protect and defend this Republic against all enemies foreign and domestic. And my friends there are enemies,” Kaptur told the House floor.
“The people pushing this deal are the very ones who are responsible for the implosion on Wall Street. They were fraudulent then and they are fraudulent now.”
“My message to the American people don’t let Congress seal this deal. High financial crimes have been committed,” added the Democrat from Ohio.
