Subject: (1) Oct ’08; (2) Congress Reps who VOTED NO but are on fence to VOTE YES – Please call; (3) Anti-Bailout VOA videoclips
(2) Please contact the below House of Representative members and either get them to maintain a “No” vote or — in the case of Reps like Waxman, Harman, Berman, and Waters — lobby them to switch from “Yes” to “No”.  The reason the originally scheduled Thursday vote was postponed to tomorrow is because they didn’t have enough “Yes” votes for passage. 
WE CANNOT ALLOW THE HOUSE OF REPS TO SELL OUT THE AMERICAN PEOPLE THE WAY THAT THE SENATE VOTE (75 to 24) DID DURING YESTERDAY EVENING’S VOTE There is unprecedented Bush-Cheney Co./Wall Street  ‘arm-twisting’ and smoke-filled room lobbying going on tonight in DC.  .  Updated coontact info for Capital Switchboard and House members who voted ‘yes’ and who might be swayed by public pressure viewable at http://www.madashellnetwork.org.
