And then 93 DEMOCRATS VOTED AGAINST THE BILL !!! And of those 93, several were committee chairs! What was THEIR excuse? Did she upset THEM? I'll tell you what it was - I'll be willing to bet they were up for reelection. What she fails to mention is that if the Dems would have allowed the McCain bill out of the banking committee back in 2005, we wouldn't have been in this mess today. And why ARE the Dems on the banking committee the recipients of the vast majority of Fanny and Freddy contributions? Could it be so they would vote the party line and prevent the sort of regulation that McCain would have provided in his bill? The Dems know if you tell a lie for a long enough period of time it will eventually be considered the truth. This situation is not Bush's fault. Instead, it's the party, who since the Clinton administration, wanted to put everybody in their own home whether they could afford it or not, who caused this. Everyone knows Pelosi and company are going to drag this thing out as long as possible in hopes of getting BO elected. Talk about doing what's good for the country . . .
