The Vote For the Bail-Out
More Democrats Voted Against the bail-out than Republicans who voted for. Democrats broke 60%-%40 for the bail-out while Republicans broke 2/3-1/3 against. Exactly how did the speakers moment of truth-telling scupper the vote for the bail-out? That is the meme being flogged by the Republicans. They vote en-mass against the bail-out and then blame the Speaker who happens to be a Democrat. Oh and why was neither the Republican president nor the Republican nominee for president able to whip more of their fellow elephants into line? Look at the numbers 71% of the Congresscritters voting against the Bail-out were Republicans.
