I just got a letter from my Senator. In this letter she explained why she voted FOR the economic rescue package. Allow me to share some of her remarks:
“It has been said that Senators have six-year terms for a reason. And that reason is to be able to take tough votes because it’s right for the nation, and take tough votes when at times they may be adverse to the beliefs of your constituency.” She went on to say that she had received over 91,000 responses from constituents, and that 86,000 of those were OPPOSED to the bill.
