Who says they are going to cave in? Have you forgotten that we are in the minority? Unless at least 15 of them in the senate and 150 in the House vote with us there is no chance for our side to win

They are using this issue to point out how this “need” for bailouts came about, the Democrat-sanctioned bad loans. Yes, Republicans are in the minority but there are maneuvers they can use and they can speak up and point out the TRUTH of the mess created by Dems which they are about to make much worse. That is my point. Instead, we are hearing conciliatory noises from Senate Republicans like Bob Corker. Conservatives are not in the mood for warm, fuzzy bipartisan talk from those supposedly on our side.
