  • Republican  Yea:  91
  • Republican   Nay:  108

Oh what a terrible web that corporate controlled media spin has wrought and now so many people run to the Internets, desperately searching trying to find their bail out...
which somehow they thought there were getting....

Folks, They bailed out the banks, not you!

My only hope is due to technology the reality, the truth of what just happened is realized by more people...

and local news organizations, spewing absolute spin and lies about this bill....they should be prosecuted for misinformation at this point!

Brave New World?

That is true. This was a bailout of the banks in the hopes that the banks will loosen up their cash so the credit can flow again. What is to guarantee that will happen?
