So what we now have is non-functional government in the face of a major crisis, because Congress includes a quorum of crazies and nobody trusts the White House an inch.Economist Paul Krugman.
As a friend said last night, we’ve become a banana republic with nukes.
I guess cutting off your nose to spite your face is as good an analogy as you can get. We punish Wall Street, that's good. What about the rest of us?
The Republicans are whining that they opposed the Bill because big, mean, nasty Nancy Pelosi hurt their feelings by giving a partisan speech. Wow, isn't that too bad...screw the country, our feelings are hurt. "Country first" Conservatives my eye.
BTW, here is the "partisan" speech. It mentions the Bush administation failed policies and it mentions Republicans once.....saying how Democrats worked with Republican colleagues. That's it. That is the excuse for voting against the Bill.
