October 3, 2008

Honorable Paul Broun
2104 Rayburn House Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20515

Congressman Broun,

Vote Yes.

I urge you to put aside partisan bickering and act in the best interest of your constituents. The downward spiral of the stock market combined with the tightening of the credit markets can not continue. Too many people are hurting and many more will be added to the list if Congress fails to act in a bipartisan way to do what is best for America.

This bill is not about Wall Street. It’s about Main Street.

It’s about Main street in Augusta, Athens, Evans, Toccoa, Hartwell, Elberton, Clayton, Hiawassee, Cornelia, Lavonia, Homer, Jefferson, Crawford, Watkinsville, Washington, Eatonton, Madison, Greensboro, Lincolnton, Thomson, and Danielsville. It’s about Main street in every city in our district. Your constituents need you to feel their pain and vote in their best interest.

90% of the businesses in the 10th district are small businesses. Small businesses are especially hit hard by the credit crunch. Lines of credit are disappearing causing them to delay or cancel orders for needed supplies, cancel expansions, layoff employees, and in some cases go out of business.

Many retired people have lost thousands, even tens of thousands of dollars in the last week. Decades of wise investing have been wiped out. It most likely will be much worse if you and the rest of Congress fail to act in a bipartisan way to solve this problem.

Small businesses, retired people, home owners, realtors, building contractors, community banks, and many others are being harmed by this crisis. Unlike Wall Street, they have done nothing wrong and you must vote to ensure they are not punished for believing in the American dream.

This is Main street in the 10th district. This is your home, my home, and the home to nearly 700,000 people that need you to be on their side.

You must act in a bipartisan way and you must vote Yes.


Bobby Saxon
Congressional Candidate
10th Congressional District
