Stocks tumble, Congress dickers. Vote-switching might be occurring (I’m watching CNBC), and the whole thing might be amended again.
It’s always fun to watch sausage being made.
My question: I thought there was an announcement last night that most were on board. What gives? As the talking head says, “Everyone is in shock.” And I can’t see how this won’t be seen as the fault of Republicans.
Fasten your seat belts, we’re in for a bumpy ride.
And although I suppose it’s not all that important at the moment, I wonder what Congress’s approval rating is right now?
[ADDENDUM: Now the news is that the market's reaction may cause some vote-switching, and that the bill isn't really dead in the water.]
[MORE: Barney Frank says Republicans are at fault. Republicans say Pelosi poisoned the well by an incendiary and partisan speech, and say they are working on passing a bill and solving the crisis. It seems to me that just because Pelosi set the bait, did they have to spring at it? I would love to see Pelosi resign as Speaker, she's been a train wreck. And I would say this if I were still a Democrat.
By the way, a lot of Democrats voted against the bill, too. For different reasons, no doubt.]
