Walt Minnick has just lost re-election.

Congressman Walt Minnick (D - Idaho's 1st congressional district) has just sealed his defeat in the 2010 congressional elections, as the first elected Democrat to the United States House of Representatives from Idaho in decades, Minnick was expected to have a tough election next year, however, after his "aye" vote this afternoon on H.R. 4173, his defeat is guaranteed.

Congressman Walt Minnick was elected to the House of Representatives as a fiscal Conservative, while having a liberal belief system on all other issues. During his first term in the House of Representatives, Minnick has voted as a fiscal Conservative on most if not all economic related legislation, however, this afternoon Minnick supported legislation that can be described alone as fascist.

According to Open Congress, The Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act of 2009 will "overhaul regulations in the financial sector. It would establish a new Consumer Financial Protection Agency to regulate products like home mortgages, car loans and credit cards, give the Treasury Department new authority to place non-bank financial firms, like insurance companies into receivership and regulate the over-the-counter derivatives market.", in other words - more government control.

This legislation is awful and pure evil, as it will establish more government control over the economics of Americans and businesses alike, the United States Chamber of Commerce has launched an advertisement campaign against the legislation, and all 175 Republicans present this afternoon voted against the legislation, with 27 Democrats opposing the legislation as well.

Congressman Walt Minnick, a supposed "blue dog Democrat" from Idaho, supported and voted for this horrific legislation, which will allow more government interference into the private market, push our economic system to resemble a fascist regime instead of a Capitalistic system, and provides for a 6 billion dollar bribe to appease the corrupt Congressional Black Caucus.

Several Conservative Republicans are running against Minnick, all of them deserve our support as they seek to reclaim Idaho's first congressional district as a Conservative Republican district, with real fiscal Conservative representation.
