    Unhappy voters jam Capitol Hill phone lines - CNN.com


    If you want them to hear you, call your congressmen today. These people work for us; let them know your take on the stimulus plan, e-verify, Buy American, etc. Obama wants this thing signed by tonight. Hmm, is the voice of the people making him nervous?

    Exactly why Obama is trying to use the fear speech and fear tactics to get this thru as soon as possible... the people are coming around more and more to realize how much this stimulus plan is utter BULLSHIT...

    He just wants to get his way and the same with his counterparts in congressional leadership.. they want their power positions to grow

    He may also start to realize that he was voted in for change.. because a lot of the country was just mad at Bush and the REP party or whatever... but the populace as a whole really does not want this kind of crap coming from their government.. even if it is from the 'man of change' or the 'party of change' that they voted in.... not all change is good change, and this is a perfect example of that

    I have called my representatives... and I do hope more and more rational people speak out against this horrid plan

    It's going to pass. It's armegeddon though for the Dems.. They can kiss bipartisan goodbye.. The people are calling and the Republicans are listening. obamalama has one chance,, this better work or he's done. he said as much the other day..
