    Federal Bailout Plan Fails in House Vote

    Yes: 207

    No: 226

    This means several Dems did not support this messure. Saints be praised. Hopefully free market capitalism isn't dead in this country yet. I will bet you the Dems that voted against are up for re-election this year. Nancy Pelosi is trying to get eleven Dems to switch their vote so this will pass. Yes, that is kosher as long as the vote is still open. I'll also bet that there is some major arm twisting going on right now.

    O.k. , I'll play , maybe Pelosi will offer her body to get them to change their vote. Er, How long do you think it will take them to author another bill.

    The House is out until Thursday. I still can't believe that the Dems are trying to blame the Republicans on this one. 93 Dems voted against this measure in the House. If no Republican voted for it they could have passed it. Especially since this was supposed to save us all from and economic doomsday. Politicians are always coming up with some sort of crisis to save us from. I for one am glad the market went down. It should tank every time that a move toward Socialism is proposed. The Federal govenment is not supposed to have this much influence over our lives, period. I hope they bitch and moan for another month so everyone can see the sky isn't falling. However, Wall Street has access to the media so that won't be allowed to happen.

    Smoke Screen , Pelosi acted as if the 93 Democrats didn't happen. It was the Republicans playing partisan politics again. Did you hear her little speech before the vote which of course blamed the Bush Administation for the mess. Remember when they won control over the house , they were so happy cause now they could get something done. Same crap. Their not even sure if the bailout will work. Hell no one is sure if it's necessary.

    Looks like it might be a good time to find some extra cash and invest in the stock market while its down. Its going to go back up, just a matter of when.

    I agree with you, I believe in survival of the fittest. Like everything else in life if you make stupid decisions , you suffer the consequences.

    ......and you'll never guess?

    Pelosi is an idiot. She's from San Francisco so go figure..... Now do we really want Obama and his friends running the show for the next four years? I think not. You be the Judge.

    Yeah Five-0 , thats the one. What an Ass Clown. Instead of taking the time to urge the House to vote for the bill because it's suppose to be so important she can't help but try to blame the "evil" Bush Admininstration for the crisis and when it doesn't pass she blames the "evil" Bush Administration. Nice leadership skills. The Dems deserve her.

    I'm proud to say that our Congressman voted against it.

    Maybe Bush should leave office early - It sickens me that he's trying to ram this through, when the Federal Reserve could have averted the Mortage crisis a year ago by simply lowering the Prime Rate (which most ARM's are indexed to).

    It also sickens me that so many people are for paying off private loans with public funds - Hell no.

    There's no way we should bail out companies that are going bankrupt for making poor decisions. I'm glad that our reps either believe in capitalism, or know they won't be reelected if they support this nonsense.

    This situation just shows how corrupt Washington is. This whole thing was a game of strategic dog and pony because the congress wanted to pass the bailout bill, but knows the American people are against it, and elections are coming up. So now they're changed the wording, and a few things and are serving up shit on a stick as a 'poo-poo' platter. How pathetic.

    Yep, they're gonna "put lipstick on that pig" and toss it out the window hoping it will fly.

    Where did I last hear "I voted against it before I voted for it"? (or was that "I voted for it before I voted against it"?) I thought we were done with that idiotic political mumbling when Kerry lost.

    Meanwhile each taxpayer will eventually have to pay for it to the tune of $7,000, if not more, unless we want China stepping in and buying more T-Bills (which means that pretty soon, China will own the US Federal Government)
