The bailout doesn't even get through the House. I'm no economist, but then, none of the douchebags voting on this are either. My initial reaction is the same as Friday, "Good."
Again, the more I read about this "compromise plan" the worse it looked—even if Krugman and others thought it was worth passing. I don't see any reason why taking some time to make sure what passes is RIGHT instead of just QUICK is a problem.
Taking a bit more time to weigh options might give me a chance to find out what the hell might be wrong with this plan, because it sounds far preferable to this bailout to me.
Based on Paulson's original proposal, this whole thing reeked of the White House demanding the whole damn solar system when all they really want is the planet. Negotiations ensue and when the dust clears, the Dems stand around patting each other on the back for getting the GOP to "settle" for the Earth and the Moon.
