Jane Mitakides can’t tell me how she’d vote on the $700 Billion Bailout. I called, I wrote- and no answer. Probably can expect the same kind of response if she gets elected.
In the politics makes strange bedfellows department, Dennis Kucinich and Mike Turner both voted against the “reformulated, new and improved bailout of the uber rich” which hands the bill for the excesses of Wall Street to the poor people on Main Street. See the final House roll call vote here.
In business, we always have at least three options to consider to solve any problem- without being overly creative. In government, it seems we only have one. Guess what? If you need any more proof that our politicians are the best that money can buy- just look at the pork that was added to the same stinker, to get the 12 extra votes they needed.
Kudo’s to Turner for voting for the people and against this crap fest. He may have actually won my vote this November.
