Senate Passes the 700 Billion Dollar Bailout

After one spectacular failure, the $700 billion financial industry bailout found a second life Wednesday, winning lopsided passage in the Senate and gaining ground in the House, where Republicans opposition softened.

Senators loaded the economic rescue bill with tax breaks and other sweeteners before passing it by a wide margin, 74-25, a month before the presidential and congressional elections.

I should post the exchanges I've had with my representatives. Not only is the free market no longer free. Representatives no longer represent. Phones have been off the hook against this bailout.

And they continue to buy the Fear, Uncertainty and Doubt that they are being fed by the same people that got us in to this mess.
