Oklahomans sound off on bailout plan

OKLAHOMA CITY (AP) - Oklahomans are sounding off to members of the state's congressional delegation about a plan to rescue the nation's financial system.

U.S. House members from the state continued to receive a heavy volume of phone calls today although virulent opposition to the Bush administration's plan has been tempered by concern about the economy.

One day after the House rejected a $700 billion proposal, the three Oklahomans who voted against it were open to supporting some sort of rescue. But they declined to be specific about what elements could sway them.

Rep. Tom Cole, who voted for the bailout, says calls to his office last week had been running 13 to 1 against the plan. Since the vote, his office has received between 300 and 400 calls, with about 60 percent opposed.
