House Votes Down Bailout Package

Ok, so, I go to log into WordPress and was completely shocked to not see this as a headline on ANY of the featured blogs.   Is no one paying attention to this stuff?

I don’t know, maybe I’m overreacting.   But, to me, the impact of this decision is a significant to this country as the impact of 9/11 was.  

And, the some of the most interesting points follow:

Despite pressure from supporters, not enough members were willing to take the political risk just five weeks before an election.

and

“We’re all worried about losing our jobs,” Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., declared in an impassioned speech in support of the bill before the vote. “Most of us say, ‘I want this thing to pass, but I want you to vote for it — not me.’ “

Nice.    Un-friggin-believable.   Again, I have no idea what the solution is.   But, the politicians who voted no are doing so not because they are intelligent and think that voting yes is a bad idea, they are voting no because they are scared to take a political risk.   I hope that every single one of them who voted no–for that reason—gets the boot and loses their jobs come time for re-election.  What a bunch of pansies!
