Bailout Bill

I'd like to extend my congratulations to Joe Courtney, the only member of the Connecticut Delegation to vote against the "Bailout Bill". While the rest of our esteemed politicians followed the lead of the head ringleader Christopher Dodd and voted to saddle the American Taxpayer with another trillion dollar obligation, Joe Courtney had the courage to say No.

No, Chris Shays, the people that leveraged their investments 30 to 1 don't deserve a bailout.

No, Chris Murphy, the people that financed a million dollar home on a $2,000/month income don't deserve to be bailed out.

No Joe Lieberman, the banks that approved people for "Liar Loans" don't deserve to get bailed out.

Yes, Joe Courtney voted that responsible people make responsible decisions.

The 18th century German Philosopher Georg Wilhelm Friedrich Hegel once said “We learn from history that we don’t learn from history.”

I hope people learn from the atrocities that our delegation has burdened the American Taxpayer with and send Jimmy Himes to Washington for a fresh start.

And that was hard for me to say, I'm a life-long Republican.
