House defeats $700B financial markets bailout
Not only could Congress not come up with a workable plan, but then Nancy Peolsi could not even deliver votes from her own party as 40% of the Democrats in the House rejected this stinker. Lots have been said about the popularity of the President, but this Congress has even lower approval ratings, and for a reason.
The Democrats could have passed this or any other bill along party lines, but can not due to a lack of leadership. There will be a lot of fallout from this fiscal mess we are in, but another casualty may be the leadership of each party in Washington. We may have an opportunity here folks to make some kind of change from the usual junk we are getting from Washington.
