Reid-McConnell Bailout Bribe Passes 263-171

Read the list of bribe takers here.

Vote them out of office in November.

Congress is a disappointment.
The majority of Americans did not want this.
This was legislation rammed down our throats.

It won't be long before the next money crisis unfolds.

Judy, this is serious question.
Do you think they know how they are going to pay for this? Have they said anything about where the money will immediately come from?
In the speechifying that I have seen, no one has mentioned that we will be borrowing (from whom, I wonder?) or printing this money.

Judy Aron said...

They will be using our tax money from the Treasury. I suppose if there isn't enough money they will just go and print some more.

I spent this afternoon re-reading Animal Farm.

I'd say we have ourselves a bunch of pigs.

Another thing that got stuck into this bill was Senator Domenici's "mental health parity" legislation which would have your insurance premiums pay for FORCED psychiatric treatment at the saame rate as for voluntary treatment for genuine medical illnesses.

silvermine, I agree. I hated that book when I was in school, but have grown to appreciate it so much over the past couple of years.
