So a week or so ago, Bush comes on TV and he's all like "we need $700 billion! Give these dudes on Wall Street $700 billion!" So then John McCain's like "yeah! I'm gonna suspend my campaign and go to Washington so we can do this thing! This is too important to hold a debate! I'm gonna bring people together! It'll be all like a big love-in! We'll sing kumba-ya while we give away your $700 billion!"
So now today, George Bush's and John McCain's bill goes down in flames, with 60% of Democrats voting in favor but only 33% of Republicans. And the REPUBLICANS blame the DEMOCRATS because of some dumb speech Nancy Pelosi made? What?!
Barney Frank, you tell those assholes what's what:
I'm not saying this bill was the right thing to do. But it was a Republican bill all the freakin' way. All the Democrats managed to add was a $500,000 cap on the tax deduction a CEO could take. Boo freakin' hoo. All the rest of that shit that got tacked on? All Republican ideas. And they didn't vote for it because they got their feelings hurt in a speech.
They should be fucking embarrassed for trying to pass the buck on this.
