The 58 U.S. House Members Who Switched Their Votes From "No" To "Yes" On The $700 Billion Emergency Economic Stabilization Bill Of 2008

On October 3rd, 2008, the U.S. House passed the 450-page, $700 billion "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008" by a 263-171 vote. The party count: Democrats supported it 172-63, while Republicans opposed it 91-108. Complete roll call available HERE. You can read an expanded post about the vote and the reaction HERE.

However, the purpose of this post is more limited; it is primarily to identify and expose the House members who switched their votes. Thanks to Politico.com, we have identified and will spotlight the 58 members of the U.S. House of Representatives who switched their votes from "No" to "Yes" on the "Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008". This will facilitate the efforts of those who wish to "hold them more rigorously accountable". It's up to you, the public, to find out who their opponents are and determine whether or not their opponents are now worthy of enhanced support.

Please note that Rep. McDermott (D-Wash.) went from "yes" to "no," while Rep. Jerry Weller (R-Ill.) did not attend Monday's vote.
