Bailout - Who Voted Yes

Well, here in Indiana, I now know who I'm NOT voting for... the "Y" against each name below.

In the Bailout Bill passed this afternoon, here are the votes from the Indiana part of the House:

DemocratsCarson, Y; Donnelly, Y; Ellsworth, Y; Hill, N; Visclosky, N.

Republicans — Burton, N; Buyer, N; Pence, N; Souder, Y.

Now it doesn't mean I'm voting for any of those who voted NO... but it definitely means anyone that voted YES is getting a NO from me.

Interestingly enough, Visclosky voted NO both on the first version and on the second version of the Bill. I'm impressed. It must have been tough considering the political arm twisting that was going on.

Speaking of Visclosky, Jasper County Democrats are hosting a "Meet the Candidate Night" event this weekend here in Wheatfield. Here are the details:

Saturday, October 4th 6:00 pm
