To the editor:
Congressman Shimkus voted no on the first financial bailout bill in 2008 and voted no on the bailout stimulus and spending bills in 2009. Congressman Shimkus was faced with the option of voting for less spending and more freedom for individuals or for bigger government and more wasteful spending.
Now, we see AIG paying millions of dollars in bonuses, with taxpayer money from the bailout bills approved by President Obama and the Democratic congress.
I am glad we have a Congressman like John Shimkus voting no on Democratic bills filled with wasteful spending. Keep up the good work Congressman Shimkus and keep watching out for our tax dollars.
