    If we go into a depression now then the republican party will suffer horribly. i dont like this bail out but alot of people are being hurt as the market tanks. bush and the rep leadership failed to deliver the votes today.

    It needed to die.

    I'm not sure the cure is better than the disease. We were told the Bear Sterns bailout was enough to stop meltdown...yeah, right!

    The GOP will be blamed regardless of how it goes.

    I am sure that we need the bail out.

    But what bothers me is that not one single law has been discussed that would keep it from happening again.

    If we gave them the 700 million. The Wall Street bankers could turn around and do the exact same thing again.

    You will only be hurt if you own stock in companies that aren't healthy. Most of the stock in your 401-K will be just fine in a few years.

    It is only a 'loss' if you sell. The bad-boys in the investment banking business are counting on you and me to panic... Don't give them the satisfaction!

    After Georgie-boy, the republicans need a spanking... as do the 'old school' democrats. Make your vote count - research your representatives this year. Base your desire to re-hire them on their courage this week.

    Toss out the lap-dogs of the lobbyists who voted for this POS bill and reward the ones who courageously listened to the people... regardless of the color of their political skin.

    That's fine with me. The Republican Party has been hijacked by the neoconservative movement. Good riddance!

    How is that... The Dems have the MAJORITY. They could of passed it on their own... What about the 90+ of their own that voted against it?

    As a republican, I hope we get full credit for stopping this bailout.

    they 60% vote for it, had the reps voted 60% it would have passed. bush is president and he and his party will be blamed, not democrats and not pelosi.
