A POX ON THEM ALL? "The House GOP wants to be heard, which seems fair. But even with a weekend to mull it over it seems they have two major hurdles to pass. First, do they have an idea that is better and remotely workable? . . . Second, in the real world you have to get others to go along and I see no one — not the Treasury, the White House, the Senate GOP, or the Democrats in either the House or Senate — showing the slightest interest in a radical transformation of the plan from a bailout to a private insurance pool. . . . And as for Harry Reid, he has not covered himself in glory as it becomes obvious what political blame game he is playing. Unfortunately for Reid, too many people saw and knew what was going on to keep up the pretense."
If we could get a new Congress for $700 billion, it would be a bargain . . . .
