Of all the self-centered, cowardly decisions – the House Republicans and Democrats who shot down this bill may have just doomed the United States to a second Great Depression. Don’t they understand that this was about more than just CYA politics?
I’m stunned and appalled that they’ve let this happen. It doesn’t matter if the general public ‘wanted’ this bailout or not. A representative republic means that our ‘leaders’ make the decision on what is best for the entire country.
Will today mark beginning of the end of the US as a superpower?
