Looks like the House is gonna fail to pass the bailout bill, by 20 or more votes. Watching the votes trickle in is almost as interesting as watching the Dow Jones fuck off. Down almost over 600 right now.
UPDATE: With time now expires and most of the NV votes coming in, it stands at 205 yea, 228 nay. Along party lines, its looking at Democrates voting 140-95 for, and Republicans voting 65-133 against. But that will change as the day goes on, as normal House rules have been suspended in order to try to get this bill passed, as every Congressman’s stock broker gets on the horn and asks WTF.
UPDATE II: Well the bill has officially failed. Sorry about your retirement fund. Luckily I’m broke as fuck so I don’t really give a shit.
