Representative Cannon, Mr. Chaffetz, and Mr. Spencer,
I am very sad to see that you voted in support of the bailout, deciding that putting vast sums of money into the hands of the already too-powerful fat-cats on Wall Street.
I believe that it is time we expected people and corporations to accept responsibility for their choices — even when the consequences are painful. As a nation, we are too quick to turn to the government to relieve us from unpleasant situations we have put ourselves in. If we can not turn ourselves from the trough, I fear for our future.
A final example of responsibility and consequences is easy to find. Continued Republican support of Wall Street over Main Street will certainly drive me, and others like me, to support other candidates in November.
Remember, there's no bailout like no bailout.

Here's the text of an email I just sent to my congressman and to the candidates for his office in this November's election. I hope it does some good.
