Louie Gohmert is a United States Congressman and, as an American, just as frustrated with the mishandling of the Henry Paulson $700 Billion. I know I have not seen any receipts for the first half of the loot which magically appears in the bank accounts of a favored few. Congressman Gohmert is fighting to stop further culpably negligent spending with the last remaining half of the Paulson Billions. I liken it to someone going to Vegas and spending money like water because, win or lose, it isn't costing that person a dime. Think of the high! I digress. I did not realize Santa Claus lived in Texas. Ghomert (Santa) is preparing a bill...as I write...to declare a "Tax Holiday" for the months of January and February 2009, courtesy of the remaining, American made $350 Billion. The holiday would be from personal income and FICA taxes. This true "maverick" is gaining many supporters to include Newt Gingrich, who felt it should go longer than the proposed two months. Gohmert stated, "By instating a temporary tax holiday, we could electrify the American economy and provide overwhelming relief to taxpayers, all for less than the cost of the current failed Paulson-Pelosi bailout system." Now, I don't want to panic anyone, however, the window of opportunity is small. Please go to the website below...it is a quick read. When Congress returns to consider the automakers' bailout it is a distinct possibility that Nancy Pelosi will not allow the bill to come to the floor...without a push from WE THE PEOPLE to the White House. Contact your Congressmen and President Bush now. Go to http://boortz.com/ (I don't care if you don't like Neal) and scroll down to the line which reads: E-mail your congressman. Click on your state located on the United States map and phone numbers (along with e-mail addresses) will appear beside your Congressmen and Senators. Let's give a little "Power to the People". Now that would be a change!
Note: I know we are not suppose to sweat the small stuff, but this bailout should have us sweating bullets!
May God bless America...and may America deserve it!
