I Lobby Voinovich

Re: my last post, I sent the following email to Senator Voinovich:

Dear Senator Voinovich:

On Thursday, the House passed a bill that would institute a special 90% "emergency tax" on bonuses paid by financial institutions that have received more than $5 million in federal bailout money.

Completely aside from the impropriety of the federal government bailing out failing businesses, this bill is a disgrace--this is the act of a dictator seeking to expropriate and nationalize an industry to appease the worst type of envy imaginable. I hope that you will stand fast and fight this bill to the best of your ability for the sake of those who do not wish to see America become a Fascist country, Fascist in the literal sense of the term, where the government determines how business is run while still retaining the fiction of private property.

Stop this travesty!

Jennifer Snow
I encourage you to contact your own senator, which can be done via this site.
