Rep. David Wu on the Bailout

My "representative" in Congress, David Wu, voted against the bailout package on 9/29 but then voted for it on 10/3. He released statements explaining his actions on both votes and, shockingly, he cited the "sweeteners" added to the bill after it was originally rejected as the reason he changed his vote.

I now have a simple litmus test for the next election. If there is a difference in positions on the bailout among the candidates, I will support the one who voted against the bailout, or says they would have voted against the bailout. A candidate who pledges to introduce a bill to repeal the bailout automatically gets my vote.

I hope my local readers will join me in voting Rep. Wu out of office.
