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, over at the Washington Post, to see how my representatives voted.
