    Yea! I noticed that too! Also noticed McCain didn't manage to make it to roll call that day either to cast a vote! He must be busy with his own campaign issues...

    With Obama and McCain "not voting", I think that since these senators are not doing their job and are pursuing a higher office, they should resign as senators. They are being paid by taxpayers, yet they are not doing their job. I wouldn't be able to keep my job, while pursuing another career, why should they? Just like Clinton. Campaigned for 15 or 16 months, lost and then went back to her job as a senator.

    Well, if Snarlin' Arlen and his shadow are for it, it most likely includes the illegal alien criminals.

    Great point Skippy! Must be nice ignore responsibilities to your constituents while campaigning for POTUS, only to have your cushy Senate job waiting for you if things don't work out!

    Since Reid voted for it and Ensign was against it....I would say it included help for illegals
    The difference between an immigrant and an illegal alien is the equivalent of the difference between a burglar and a houseguest. Join our efforts to Secure America's Borders and End Illegal Immigration by Joining ALIPAC's E-Mail Alerts network (CLICK HERE)

    Read the bill, who the hell is going to help other than the FED again?

    The Federal Corporation is stealing America blind.
    Unless we get those criminals & make them pay for what they have done to our country and the lawlessness they have sponsored, we are just another Mexico ourselves!

    I'm disappointed in my two Senators:

    North Carolina

    Burr (R) Not Voting; Dole (R) Not Voting.
    They should have both had the guts to vote he$$ no!

    Nice to see these folks did the right thing, even if it was a wasted effort:

    DeMint
    Grassley
    Vitters
    Cornyn
    Hutchinson
    Kyl
    Ensign
    Coburn
    Thune
    Corker
    Hatch
    Barrasso
    Enzi

    I'm not surprised to see that every single U.S. Senate Democrat voted for the bail out!
