Recently Senator McCaskill voted for the economic stimulus bill. Much has been said about the earmarks and pork placed into the bill, as well as the huge cost to the taxpayers. I've started writing Senator McCaskill asking her to represent the wishes of the people of Missouri and to vote against future spending. Much to her credit, she has introduced legislation aimed at earmarks and oversight. However, this is probably too little too late.
Please join me in contacting Senator McCaskill. Tell her your opinion, no matter which side you're on. The more our representatives hear from us the more likely they are to vote for our wishes in Washington.

Remember, it's government by the people. So let's govern.
