The Bailout Vote: Who Switched?

[Update: Check out the new post, “A Bailout Rogues Gallery . . .“]

The Members of Congress who changed their votes to pass financial services bailout legislation, which failed in the House on Monday, surely knew that they were taking a high-profile vote. So let’s give them that high profile!

If you support the bailout, you can contact them with your congratulations and send checks to their campaigns. If you don’t support the bailout, you can contact them with your nuanced criticisms and send checks to their opponents in the upcoming election.

The best thing you could do is contact your own representative. That’s the person who will actually pay attention to you. And of course: vote.

Here is the vote [pdf], broken out by Republicans and Democrats. I’ll be putting it into a more useful form (oh, and flying from Chicago to D.C.) over the next little while.

[Update: shown in bold are the Members of Congress who changed their votes from “nay” to “yea” and the one who didn’t vote previously but voted “yea” this time. The one Member who changed his vote from “yea” to “nay” is in italics.]

(The Senate vote is here. The earlier House vote is here.)

Here’s the vote today by party, yea/nay vote, and alphabetical order:
