Money Bailout Bill Passes
posted by October 3 at 10:37 AMon
The measure was approved in a 263 to 171 vote, with 172 Democrats and 91 Republicans offering support. … Democrats also won 32 more votes than they had on Monday, despite reservations from some conservative Democrats that the tax package would add to the deficit. […]
In addition, federal legislators noted that the publicís view of the measure seemed to swing following Mondayís precipitous stock market drop. While many lawmakers had said that nine out of 10 callers objected to the measure over the weekend and on Monday, things appeared to balance out later in the week.
Now we can shift our economic panic to the unemployment crisis.
