House Votes Down Bailout Bill… For Now

The House of Representative has voted against the $700 billion dollar bailout bill… for now.  207 members voted yea and 226 voted nae.  The bill, however isn’t dead, just yet.  The voting has remained opened, tabled for a time.

It’s amazing to see who is for and who is against the bill.  Personally, I never wanted the bill to pass, because I believe in small government, but I know others, who don’t mind government intervention, who oppose the bill for completely different reasons.

It’s going to be very interesting to see if a different version of the bill passes.

Later today, I’ll check the U.S. Congress Votes Database, over at the Washington Post, to see how my representatives voted.
