Coralville Courier: Bailout crisis? What bailout crisis?
Excerpted from this post at Coralville Courier
If the supposed financial crisis on Wall Street is soooooooo severe,
then why hasn't a bill passed? Democrats hold the majority in the
House. If they really wanted to pass some GOOD legislation, they
could. They don't need a single GOP vote to get things done. The U.S.
House voted no and defeated a $700 billion emergency rescue for the
nation's financial system on Monday, putting a stop to what some have
termed a socialist takeover of the markets. The vote was 228-205 to
reject the bill, with Speaker Pelosi, a Democrat, blaming a baker's
dozen number of Republicans for the defeat. What Pelosi intentionally
omitted in her post vote comments, is that 94 Democrats also voted no.
