Thune Amdt. No. 3301; To terminate authority under the Troubled Asset Relief Program, and for other purposes

I subscribe to Congress.org's MegaVote update newsletter that advises information on key votes for bills and amendments in both the house and senate and also provides information on my specific representative's votes. Today I received notice that the Thune Amendment to terminate TARP was rejected for insufficient votes; 60 yes votes were required, the final count was 53 (yes) to 45 (no). The newsletter also stated that my representatives, Dianne Feinstein (D-CA) and Barbara Boxer (D-CA), had voted yes and no, respectively. I was so angered by Barbara Boxer's no vote and realized that she is and will always be an arrogant elitist. Madam Boxer has lost touch with her constituents, the constitution, her obligation to the people of the United States, and will stop at nothing, endangering the welfare of our entire nation along with her crony progressive liberal senators. I have emailed her regarding the Thune Amendment and suggest that everyone email their senators that also voted 'no' on the amendment. Below is the email I sent, feel free to use the same verbiage:

Madam Boxer, you must be out of your mind and too much of an elitist to understand that main street USA stops spending when they are in too much debt. Your continued spending and voting along party lines regardless of the benefit to bills and amendments I guarantee will oust you from the Senate. I, as one of main street USA's senior middle class, will make ever effort and take any measure to ensure you NEVER hold office again. Consider this your eviction notice.

President for a Day Survey

I received the following email today from American Solutions:

Following up on yesterday's email, it's clear that after Scott Brown's victory and the loss of his filibuster-proof majority in the Senate, President Obama must rethink his options, and his agenda.

And the first real signal of whether or not President Obama took any definitive lessons from the Massachusetts election will be next Wednesday, when he gives his State of the Union address.

So our question for you today is, what should President Obama say next week?

The last question on the survey asked, "What do you want President Obama to speak to in his State of the Union Address?" My answer was simple and to the point:

First and foremost, Mr. Obama should advise us of his plan to resign. It should include his acknowledgment that using enhanced interrogation techniques is a better solution to questioning terrorists, he should admit his mistake in his decision to bring terrorists such as KSM for trial in a civilian court on U.S. soil, he should admit the $787 billion stimulus package did NOT save or create jobs and his plans to return any unused tax dollars, he should advise us that he is dropping his health care agenda, he should acknowledge that he erred in the auto industry take over pandering to the unions and his new plan to correct this malfeasance, and, finally, a sincere apology to the American people for his errors in judgment and agendas that are not in consonance with our constitution.
