Wow. The House defeated the bailout 205 yea, 228 nay. I got my wish, except that it wasn't really the Dems so much that defeated the bill, but rather incumbents up for re-election who were listening to their constitutents:
"We're all worried about losing our jobs," , R-Wis., declared in an impassioned speech in support of the bill before the vote. "Most of us say, 'I want this thing to pass, but I want you to vote for it — not me.' "
Now I just have to hope getting my wish doesn't bite me in the butt too badly.
