How Stupid Do Voters Look?

Who would have thought that just being in a VIP program would allow one to receive special treatment? Obviously not Chris Dodd.

Senator Chris Dodd who happens to be Chairman of the Senate Banking Committee, had no idea that when he said "yes" to Countrywide Financial's offer to be part of their VIP program it meant he would get some kind of special treatment. Imagine how shocked he was to learn that his VIP status gave him special loan rates and terms! He insists that he new nothing about favorable treatment under the program.

I guess he thought it was more of an honorary title, like King or something. Funny thing, he's the only one that didn't "know."

If he did this then he should go down...but we should also clean house of anyone who got special deals and favors. My bet...most will be on the other side of the aisle.

Rumor here in D.C. has it that the Senate will be voting on the Bailout on July 7. The bill will then be sent back to the House.

As a member of the fiscally conservative Blue Dog Coalition, Rep. Giffords (AZ - 8) should oppose this bill. However, she has yet to speak out against the mortgage bailout that would raise the deficit by $22 billion and reward irresponsible lending practices.

If you are able, please attend one of the upcoming town hall meetings with Rep. Giffords and ask her where she stands on the bailout.

Here are the details:

WHAT: Candidate Forum
WHEN: July 2, 2008 from 6:00 – 8:00pm

Tucson, AZ

WHEN: July 3, 2008 from 9:15 – 10:00am
