Thank You Peter Welch

Peter Welch, Vermont's sole member of the House of Representatives, courageously voted against the Wall Street bailout bill today.

Thanks to principled and astute representatives like Mr. Welch, the 700 billion dollar bailout was rightly defeated, confounding the financial industry and delighting working Vermonters who believe in thrift, fairness and common sense.

Vermonters know that the best investments are education, strong local communities and good topsoil. Thank you, Mr. Welch, for standing up to tremendous pressure from financial lobbyists and the Bush administration and doing the right thing.
