If your Senator voted Nay, get the info out and let's get them out of office. Tell the tea partiers, tell your neighbors, time to play watchdog on the NeoCons showing their true colors

Not living in Montana anymore sadly, but I expected better from Montanans.
Tester (D-MT), Nay
Baucus (D-MT), Nay

As for NC
Hagan (D-NC), Nay (No surprise there)
Burr (R-NC), Yea (Slightly surprised, Burr is a big time war-mongering statist)

Mark Warner (D) VA. Nay.

Why does this look totally partisan?

Sadly my 2 Senators (Republicans) voted Nay from Tennessee. I've known one of them was a Neocon, but Corker, /sigh. I'm definitely working to get them out of office now after this.

***** #1 Murray (D-WA), Nay

And holy hell ***** #2 voted Yea... Cantwell (D-WA), Yea

Well Murray already is in a position she could potentially lose, hopefully this can help convince people to vote against her.

Corker and Alexander from Tn both have to go. There was a slight hope for Alexander when the first bailout vote was cast, but then he voted for it on the second vote that counted.
Since then they have both been pro bailout and anti audit.

Stabenow and Levin - both Nay. It's not like I expect them to ever vote the way I think they should though.

Sununu and Shaheen, both nays. Sununu isn't seeking reelection and Shaheen has another 4 yrs.

GA - Chambliss & Isakson both R, both voted yea.
Both bailouters, though, and will therefore likely never regain my trust nor my vote.

Nevada: Ensign (R-NV), Yea Reid (D-NV), Nay

Called Ensigns office and gave my thanks.

Called Reid's office for an explanation of why he would vote no, was told he has not released any statements concerning his vote yet.

Voinovich (R) and Brown (D) both voted nay. Neither surprise me, but I had kind of hoped Voinovich might vote correctly. God, I hate politicians.

Boxer and Feinstein. Nay

Amdt. 3760 to S.Amdt. 3739 to S. 3217


I am disappointed with the Nay vote on this issue to begin to go forward with an audit of the Federal Reserve. The Federal Reserve is the number one cited organization that is blamed for the housing crisis by people who predicted the housing crisis. I think monetary policy should be the number one priority that should be brought to the forefront in congress to help restore California and America's prosperity.

Please consider voting to increase transparency of the Federal Reserve in future vote castings. It is important that congress does its part in its stated task of providing oversight of the Federal Reserve.

Thank you for your consideration.

Suprisingly I have to give praises to my two Senators Demint and Graham for voting in favor of it.

Why are we tabulating the nay votes on a bill, that as passed, is 99% a nothing burger anyway? The FULL auditing language of Paul was kicked out, and replaced with the limited Sanders version that restricts auditing the Fed ONLY to what it did with the TARP money since 2008. Except for that, THIS WAS NOT PROGRESS. In context the nay votes are moot.

I still don't understand how a bill can pass so strongly in the House but then get routed in the Senate? Are there less lobbyists in the House?

Can someone explain? How could such overwhelming support from the House bear so little impact on their Senate counterparts?

Senator Vitter tried to get Ron Paul's "Audit the Fed" measure appended to the so-called financial regulation bill. The effort failed, 37 to 62. Please take action . . .

Check to see how your Senators voted here.

Then, send a letter to Congress that does the following . . .

* Thank a Senator if he or she voted yes
* Spank a Senator if he or she voted no
* Add a request for both of your Senators and your House Rep. to please vote against the so-called financial regulation bill.

You can send your letter here.

The hard-wired message for this campaign reads: Please pass legislation requiring an audit of the Fed.

I'm in Arizona. For my letter to Congress I added the following personal comments, after which you can model your own . . .

I'm displeased that the Senate voted down the Vitter amendment, which would have given us a complete audit of the Fed. Thank you to Senator McCain for voting yes on the amendment, but I am very unhappy with Senator Kyl for voting against it.

I want to urge both of my Senators, and my House Rep., who is also getting this message, to please vote down the financial regulation bill as a whole. It's just another bloated Washington, DC mess.

END LETTER

You can see your Senator's names once you're logged-in to send your thank or spank letter.

Please check to see how your Senators voted here.

Let every Senator be overwhelmed with letters! Retweet this.

Thanks for being part of the Downsize DC Army.

It's because we're not tabulating votes on the nothing-burger; we're tabulating votes on the Vitter amendment, which was meant to add Paul's original language into the Senate bill. It's BECAUSE of these nay votes that the audit remained a nothing-burger in the Senate.

Well, I don't really know what "my state" is - I still identify with Maryland mostly, and I never expect the liberal senators there to vote on my side. Sure enough, Mikulski and Cardin are both "Nay" votes.

Bennett voted Nay---Evil grin glad he is didn't get renominated for Republican party in Utah.

Hatch - Yea
Bennett - Nay

Interpretation:

Hatch - "Message received!"
Bennett - "Scorched earth exit"

Bennett has been making noise about running a write-in campaign - I would say this vote is a nail in that coffin.
