Unger: This deal is between Paulson and Pelosi.
Hoover. Why do they need the Republicans? If it’s so great, just vote on it and be done with it. Voting yes is political suicide. Principled stand by the Rs.
Johnson: Dems are not getting encouraging calls.
Batchelor: What if Rs block the bill or vote NO en masse?
Hoover: The stock market may go down a lot - I don’t know the right number.
Johnson: Don’t give money to ACORN! Franklin Raines and Jim Johnson bought loans from them. People will be hurt. Rs should hold line otherwise they will be scapegoats.
Batchelor: Bailout is not a done deal. Only the leadership thinks it has a deal, the membership is not going along.
