  •  the point is that because it's a gimmick (0+ / 0-)

    the House Republicans who vote no will benefit from this, and possibly win reelection.

    A yes vote is political poison...at least a yes vote to a 700 billion bail out bill that the public is increasingly sick over.

    •  Really? When latest poll shows 74% support (1+ / 0-)

      for some sort of fix?  When the Dems negotiating this are getting significant changes from the original Paulson proposal?

      Let me tell you what the public will be sick about: 4 or 5 days of 100+ point drops in the Dow, that will devastate people's savings for retirement, at the very least, and people will be scared to death and screaming for action.

      But a lot of people here don't seem to care about people's lives and futures being destroyed in all of this.

        Yes 74% support some sort of fix, but if the big 700 billion dollar bailout happens, you can bet that it will be spun as a big government socialistic power grab. Republicans don't care if they sink Bush along the way, either. This plan is not that popular.

        So, we need "some sort" of other fix.
