The people have spoken. A huge segment of Americans realized that the corruption in the market and the Government better listen. Bush, wake up. This guy has been in a coma far to long.

Ok, someone help me here. They had $700B to throw at the bailout. Now it’s not happening. Is the $700B a surplus? Where does it go now?

With the country two steps away from losing faith in our financial system, was this a good idea to vote down this bill? Personally I’m thinking about heading to my local bank to withdraw my funds before the runs begin.

“this is a gigantic opportunity for mccain. he and the house republicans can take the lead.”

amen.

but, if these proposals are put forth, you can bet that the “mainstream media” will badmouth them as tax breaks for the rich, windfalls for the rich, benefits for the rich; they will scream racism and the left will stir up dissatisfaction and foment revolution as they usually do.

we are living in dangerous times and these obviously far-left democrats will exploit them to the hilt.

(may the house republicans stand up further and offer healthy economic proposals for a disease planted by the left-wing revolutionaries of the congress.)

IMHO

Does anyone know if there is a place to go to see how each congressperson voted? Thanks.

I have to admit i really don’t understand this whole thing.

But I’d be willing to take some hard economic hits to avoid the slippery slope to socialism.

YES...That is what they need to do. What is really sad is that all of this time has been waisted this bill. They really needed to be working on a good bill.

Such measures will address the credit/liquidity crisis in a matter of years, not weeks as is required to advert a Depression/ Recession.

I wish it otherwise, but I can’t foresee private interests stepping in anytime soon and putting their own capital @ risk when it’s against their own self interest to make that bad bet. The Long Depression in the late 19th century took 20 years for private interests to sort it out.
