It's either a win a very very big loss. They could just hype up the horror that will come because the bill didnt pass and use the momentum to pass an even more destructive bill or they can let the economy correct itself the way it should.

I expect an even more destructive bill to be introduced. But then I'm a pessimist.

Better buckle down gang, its going to be a long cold winter on the American front.



I went to four different gas stations this morning that did not have any fuel for sale. We could see the collapse of the economy within the next two weeks.

I hope it was true! You know how they sometimes report things from 'canned' pre-packaged articles!

If it is turned down I tell you, it doesn't matter - why do you think Bernake dumped 630 Billion into the market on our account? They have already stolen the money. The $700 billion was just so they could 'hide' the theft more easily.

They are now voiting to susupend the rules and pass the bill. THat means a voice vote, yea or nay, no roll call, and hence no pain for the sobs when they go home to run again.

Sorry but what do you mean by this? The bill failed. They can vote on it again?

There's no re-vote. The bill is dead and they have moved on.

CSPAN Live

House votes down massive bailout measure MSNBC

WASHINGTON - The House on Monday defeated a $700 billion emergency rescue package, ignoring urgent pleas from President Bush and bipartisan congressional leaders to quickly bail out the staggering financial industry.

Stocks plummeted on Wall Street even before the 228-205 vote to reject the bill was announced on the House floor.

Woo-HOO!!!! It seems it really IS dead!

So... Now what will they try?

Congress can, unfortunately, do anything they want. But it looks like the vote to suspend the rules has failed.
Folks, our economy will survive. It may falter, but it will recover, and when it does we will be better off than ever.

House Minority Leader John Boehner said there would be no revote on the bill on Monday, so they will have to repackage it and try to sell the new one.

It boils down to: Will taxpayers fund more liquidity for crooks in order to let them continue playing the same casino games, or saying no more to addiction, it's over and time for jail and rehab.

Don't ever buy into a hard sell....you will lose.

I know there is NOTHING they can say or do to make me believe the crooks should be paid by me, you and everyone else. Thanks for the answer to my question.

I'm off to write my congresscritters telling them I will not vote for them if they EVER use my money to pay the crooks.
