Both of my senators voting against it. They aren't getting any support from my family and friends. I'm letting everyone know. I will even place a bumper sticker on my car. I better start making them soon.

One of my senators voted nay, the other was missing in action. He's not going to be around anymore anyway. He's retiring this year. I wonder what one of his possible successors, Rand Paul. would have voted.

One voted yes, and one voted no for my state.

Funnily enough, the one who voted yes is the one who's not seeking re-election.

Thanks for the list of the guilty parties who are for Big Banks.
Those are the ones who need to be tarred & feathered. They don't care about the American people.

How can they sleep at night? Have they no morals? I wonder how much they're going to have to pay to have bodyguards with them as they walk our public streets surrounded by those that they have lied to & screwed royally?

I will be voting out the ones from my state. Thanks again for the valuable info.

Edit: I think I'll be moving back to PA where I was born.

PA is a great state. They are looking to pass the same bill for immigration that Arizona recently passed. Majority 78% of PA residents support the Arizona bill and the legislature of PA is responding to the polls.

That's wonderful to hear. I guess once BofA finally takes my home with their fraudulent lending practices, several broken contracts & promises, & proving beyond a doubt that they aren't capable of servicing my piddly little mortgage, I'll be on my way back to PA.

Take note: Only Democrats voted yay! Not one republican has the jewels to go against their masters.

I say if we want a government that is beholding to no one save the voters then the message has to be vote out everyone who holds an office, do it for 6 years running and the message is, don't get too comfortable, cause you are only there for the term you were elected to, do a good job and we may consider electing you up to the next post.

A couple republicans had the guts to do what was right but it was mostly democrats. Republicans still think they can do what they want and just tell tell the public it was the evil democrats fault or have Glenn Beck or Rush tell them.

Hutchison and Cornyn voted 'yea' on this. Last time they get support from me and my family, that's for sure!

Now I'm REALLY glad Rick Perry beat Hutchison for the Republican Tx governor's nomination.

Can somebody quickly sum up this deal here. I'm a bit confused.

The OP is Senate fails to pass "too big to fail" and the vote was at 8:47 PM.

And here is a USA Today article about the approved amendments banning tax payer dollars from being used to bail out failing firms. And a second one taking away their $50 billion safety net.

So did the whole TBTF thing fail or did just one of the proposed amendments fail? If the latter I dont think that qualifies as complete bill failure.
