Note: How To Stop A Run On The Banks supersedes the following campaign.
Please read and act on the above link.

We need to target the Senate. It is likely the next action shifts there. However, everyone still needs to follow up by thanking or chastising their House Representative as explained in The Bailout Failed: What’s Next?

One new idea for this campaign is that the bill is unconstitutional as explained by the We The People Foundation.

I want everyone to contact every senator.

Fax Title: Courageous Vote In The House

Dear senator

Today the US House of Representatives cast a courageous vote against the Paulson bailout proposal.

In spite of the stock market gyrations, we encourage you to do the same.

Bill Is Unconstitutional

The Paulson Proposal is ill-advised, the wrong approach, will not create any jobs.

Furthermore, there is no constitutional authority for the US Government or the Federal Reserve to use public (taxpayer) money for what is definitely a private purpose (bailing out Wall Street).

Fox Oversees Henhouse

The bill sets up an oversight board, which is directed to “ensure that the policies implemented” by Mr. Paulson are proper. Mr. Paulson is to be one of the five members of the board watching over his own actions. He is joined by the chairman of the Federal Reserve, the chairman of the Securities and Exchange Commission, the Housing Secretary and the director of the Federal Home Finance Agency.

The proposed toothless oversight board does anything but waste more taxpayer money.

New Proposal Cedes Congressional Authority To The Administration

Paulson, or whoever the next Treasury Secretary is, can buy whatever he wants, at whatever price he wants. Why should Congress give such authority to anyone at any time?

Note that the next Treasury Secretary is not even a known quantity!

Ceding blank check power to the administration and requiring super majorities to override would set a dangerous precedent.

I am appalled that the administration would ask for such power and I am even more appalled that Congress would be willing to structure a bill this way.

No Insurance

Likewise, ceding power to the treasury on how to best implement the insurance provision is also a terrible idea. Congress, not the Treasury should stipulate how insurance should work. Leaving insurance to the discretion of the Treasury is tantamount to agreeing there should not be insurance.

Broad New Powers For The SEC

A provision of the bill gives the S.E.C. permission to suspend the rule for any individual company if it thinks that is in the public’s interest. It is absurd that the SEC should be allowed to wave whatever rules it wants.

We got into trouble in the first place because of poor accounting principles!

No Help For Homeowners

This bill offers no help for homeowners. All it offers is a provision to “encourage” servicers of the underlying mortgages to take advantage of the Hope for Homeowners Program. Exactly what use is that?

Administrative Costs

Administrative costs are hidden.

Recoupment mechanism

The recoupment mechanism does nothing except to require the President submit a proposal to offset such costs after five years. There is nothing of merit in the bill that remotely protects the taxpayer, and no constitutional grounds for a taxpayer sponsored bailout in the first place.

Bill Is A Disgrace

This bill is so full of holes and toothless provisions it is a disgrace.

Bill Creates No Jobs

Most importantly, the bill will not create a single job, nor will it solve the underlying economic problems. Over 190 major economists agree.

If you vote for this Bailout Bill I will vote against you.

I will do more than that, I will work actively for your opponent, no matter who that person is, doing everything in my power to contribute to your defeat.

If you vote for this bill I will contribute my time, energy and money to your opponent, whoever that may be.

Senator, It is time to push the Paulson proposal aside and start all over.
