Critical Action Alert! Stop TARP #2 NOW!

As I'm on several "Tea Party" group email distribution lists, I tend to get similar alerts and messages from several places. All of them vary a bit in information and links to other sources so, especially on this particular issue, I will share all of them via the blog as they come in to me on email.

Please read these alerts and take whatever action you can take to help stop this in its tracks. Don't rely on your Republican Senator or Congressman to do what's right in this case. They are "compromising" as I type... They need to know that the R behind their name on ballots will never guarantee their re-election. As certainly as they throw our liberties to the wind so shall we throw their careers!

CONGRESS TRYING TO PUSH THROUGH MORE BAILOUTS - HELP US FIGHT BACK NOW!

Friends,

There is no time for playing in the dirt this spring.  Congress is back in session and once again, on the fast track to take away some of your freedoms and liberties.  They think we are not paying attention and are going to let them scoot this nonsense past us.  It is up to us to stand strong and stop their attempt at creating a PERMANENT bailout fund of $50 BILLION dollarsYes, you read that correctly! THIS IS TARP all over again!

Senate Bill 3217, also known as the Restoring American Financial Stability Act of 2010, was introduced by Democrat Senator Chris Dodd of Connecticut.  This bill may come to the Senate floor as early as today.  Once it comes to the floor, it can be voted on 72 hours later.  Time is of the essence in this matter!

You know the drill...we need all hands on deck to be calling, faxing, and emailing.  The list of targets is listed below.  If you call a Senator's office and they tell you that they don't represent you, please politely let them know that their vote affects all Americans.  You may also remind them of the power of the people...Senator Scott Brown's election and Congressman Bart Stupak's retirement are great examples!

You can read Senate Bill 3217 HERE.

Do you want to know more specifics on this horrendous legislation that is being shoved down our throats?  Just to give you a few examples of the horrors included in this legislative power grab...if passed, this will allow the federal government to access your personal bank records, credit card records, and financial portfolio!  This will allow for takeovers of "nonbank" companies and the government will determine this on a case by case basis and there is no judicial review required to take over any financial institution.  This legislation will also create a PERMANENT $50 Billion Dollar bailout fund (emergency fund) that the federal government can tap into on a whim.  Where is the oversight?  There is much more than this, but this should give you a taste of what they are attempting to do with this legislation.

What are you going to do to stop this?  Please call, email and fax today!  This cannot wait another day. 


Please also email the Chief of Staff for each of these Senators.  They need to hear from you!
