I just heard on MSNBC that Senator Feinstein, senator of a state that went overwhelmingly for Obama, said she reserves the right to vote against the stimulus package.
So, I called her office...
"Does Senator Feinstein support the stimulus package?" I asked.
"She supports the provisions for infrastructure and that create jobs," was the reply.
"Well, is she going to vote for the package?"
"She hasn't made a statement yet."
So, there you go.
I don't know what the hell her problem is, but it would be nice if y'all gave her a piece of your mind. Don't bother calling the DC office. It's busy. I got through to her Los Angeles office.

Ok, so apparently Feinstein is against the tax cuts and watering down of the bill being insisted upon by the Republicans. See War on Error diary.
It would be nice if her office staff could explain that when we call.
