House to Reconvene Thursday After Bailout Bill Fails
Stock Market Drops Nearly 800 Points
Last Edited: Monday, 29 Sep 2008, 3:49 PM MDT
By The Associated Press

WASHINGTON -- In a stunning vote that shocked the capital and worldwide markets, the House on Monday defeated a $700 billion emergency rescue for the nation's financial system, ignoring urgent warnings from President Bush and congressional leaders of both parties that the economy could nosedive without it. The Dow Jones industrials plunged nearly 800 points, the most ever for a single day.

Democratic and Republican leaders alike pledged to try again, though the Democrats said GOP lawmakers needed to provide more votes. Bush huddled with his economic advisers about a next step. The House was to reconvene on Thursday instead of adjourning for the year as planned.

Stocks began falling even before the 228-205 vote to reject the bill was officially announced on the House floor. The 777-point decline for the day surpassed the 721-point previous record, on the day after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks, though in percentage terms it was well short of the drops on Black Monday of October 1987 and at the start of the Depression.

**SNIP**

Said Boehner, after the vote: "Americans are angry, and so are my colleagues."

“though the Democrats said GOP lawmakers needed to provide more votes”

Phooey! You already got more than 60 GOP votes. How about you get the extra votes from your own party?

We were just discussing that.

The economy is all but cartwheeling down range, and they run off to celebrate a Holiday?

How about they stay gone, and let the bailout die for good.

Gutless Dems and GOPers with backbone, no surprise and a pleasant surprise. Constitution wins the battle, outcome of war unknown. I don’t like what is behind Door #1, I want to see what is behind Door #2 and Door #3. One thing is known tho, as a Catholic this earth will someday face Armageddon, this is not Armageddon. Will it be difficult, YES, but what does NOT kill us, makes us stronger.

Looks like a lot of blue state Repubs voted for it. I counted 7 from CA alone and noticed several NY and a few other blue’s too. Take away all the blue’s and not many red state Repubs left.

I'm not so sure. House RATS want to win their next election. Maybe that's why Pelosi NEEDED Republicans to 'join her' - eh?

Our side may need to find a few RATS that can switch to a "no" vote.

It's like the Terminator
Listen and understand. That terminator is out there. It can't be bargained with, it can't be reasoned with. It doesn't feel pity, or remorse, or fear, and it absolutely will not stop. Ever. Until you are dead.
It's like the 1994 Assault Weapons Ban. At one point we thought we killed it, but the Clintons brought it back until it passed. The only thing we can do it keep the pressure on and try to run out the clock on when they have to adjourn for elections.

Boehner pulled a Bill Clinton - he voted for it because he had to, but did not endorse it and told the Republicans to vote for it if their consciences would let them.

Check my list in post # 47 vs. your list in post # 8. Quite a coincidence, no?

These critters who are retiring are either covering for Bush, McCain or Wall St. They had nothing to lose and possibly are paying back some campaign contribution favors.

Crank it up on Thursday. The bailout should be buried in emails and phone calls by irate citizens who are again being forced to pay for the sins of Wall St. and Congress. We have had more than enough.

Those who rule should read Dr. Seuss’s book, “Yertle, the Turtle.” We are tired of being on the bottom of the stack.
