THE LIST OF SENANT REPUBLICANS WHO VOTED TO RELEASE THE LAST TARP FUNDS
After the election of Barack Obama, the majority of Americans still were against the TARP bailouts, and the Republican Senate Minority mounted an effort to stop the release of the final funds from the program in January shortly before President Obama’s inauguration. CNN.com reported on the vote, however the Huffington Post reported the vote as a decisive win for the President, the report reads:
Six Republicans joined with 45 Democrats and one Joe Lieberman to defeat a resolution that would have blocked the release of $350 billion in financial-industry bailout funds…
Three of the six Republicans that joined the Democrats swung the vote to use the last TARP funds we now know to go to foreign banks. All six represent exactly what we do not want in a Republican. Please remember this vote when you stand in the ballot box, this vote could have saved the American people $300 billion (with a B).

"Nov. 20 (Bloomberg) -- A U.S. senator said he would seek to block any legislation containing a measure to remove the Federal Reserve’s shield from congressional audits of the central bank’s interest-rate decisions.
The House Financial Services Committee yesterday advanced a proposal requiring audits of the Fed that was introduced by Representative Ron Paul, a Republican from Texas. Senator Judd Gregg, a New Hampshire Republican and member of the Banking Committee, said in an interview today that the measure “would do fundamental damage to the strength of our financial structure as a nation.”
“I would not vote for any bill and I would filibuster any bill that had this language in it,” Gregg said, referring to the legislative delaying tactic that requires 60 Senate votes to break. "
We all know what to do.
We need to get someone running against this guy from both the republican an democrat party. We need all of his constituents to show him that the people have the power and criminals and frauds will be held accountable.
This guy is a fraud who should of went down with Abramoff but if he wants to go down with the FED instead then he has chosen the wrong side of history.
