The Bailout – Where Manion Stands

Sept 30, 2008 — Doylestown PA — Congressman Patrick Murphy voted IN FAVOR of the bailout bill just rejected by the United States House of Representatives.

Tom Manion, Republican candidate for U.S. Congress, would have voted AGAINST the Bush/Pelosi/Murphy bailout bill.

“I see the value in both sides of this historic vote,” said Tom. “I don’t want taxpayers to bear the burden of government mistakes within our banking and finance systems. On the other hand, I am opposed to using these huge sums of taxpayer dollars to support a free market economy. I think we need to take more time to react and balance both of these concerns. I would have voted no at this point. I will continue to monitor developments but won’t support any legislation that is not in the best interest of the taxpayers.”

Murphy voted in support of sticking taxpayers with a $700 billion dollar bailout of mistakes made by our government. Perhaps this is no surprise, since Murphy likes to spend taxpayer dollars. The citizens watchdog group CCAGW rates Murphy’s fiscal policies as 15 out of 100.

Just last week, in the midst of this fiscal crisis, Murphy voted yes on a $60 billion dollar spending bill that contained nearly 7 billion dollars worth of earmarks.

Today’s price tag for taxpayers?
Murphy: $760,000,000,000
Manion: $0
