GOP Rebels Bushwack Bailout

GOP Rebels Bushwack Bailout

Breaking ranks with the Administration and their party’s leadership, Free Market Fundamentalist rebels within the GOP defeated economic bailout legislation in the U.S. House of Representatives, getting folksy metaphors recorded on C-SPAN and driving the stockmarket into a 700 hundred point dive, largest one-day drop in history. $1.2 trillion in market value dissappeared immediately because these GOP ideologues threw a snit fit. That’ll help those widows and orphans who still have anything left in their investment accounts! Yayhoo! A big ol’ Rebel Yell on ya.

The vote failed 228-205. Anybody know how many of those grandstanding “Nay” voters are up for re-election next month? Not that there’s anything wrong with that . . . .
