On Friday, the House of Representatives narrowly passed the Cap and Tax plan. Forty-four Democrats voted against it; eight Republicans voted for it. Those eight votes passed the legislation. The bill was approximately 1200 pages -- none of the politicians had time to read it, yet passed it anyway. The real fight is coming to the Senate in September. We have to stand up and fight against this intrusive legislation. Start now to call and write your senators. They need to understand that we will not re-elect them if they vote for this huge tax and violation of our fourth amendment rights. The fourth amendment protects us from unlawful searches and seizures; the Cap and Tax plan will allow inspectors into our homes to check our lightbulbs, thermostats, and any other personal items that are none of their business.
