Congressman Mike McIntyre was one of the critics that said the final bill contained too many unnecessary ‘pork projects’. He released a statement after voting no on the rescue plan, stating the bill was unsatisfactory in four ways 1) The bill fails to protect American taxpayers against their money being used to help foreign companies and foreign banks. 2) Oversight of how this money is spent by the Secretary of the Treasury is severely limited. 3) Few, if any, homeowners will get mortgage relief. 4) He said this bill drives up our national debt to nearly $10 trillion. Congressman McIntyre said this bill is more expensive than the first bill that was defeated. McIntyre says now that the bill has passed, he will do all he can to make sure taxpayers' money is used wisely. You can use the following link to read the complete text of the bill.
