Over at The Art of the Possible I discuss yesterday's Congressional killing of the bailout bill
As a child of the 80s, I’m not at all reassured by the alleged death of the Wall Street bailout bill after Congress voted it down yesterday. “Dead. Sure,” I say in a cynical voice. “That’s what they told me about Freddy Krueger. And Jason Voorhees. And every bloodsucking vampire who ever graced the silver screen.” With the president and his pals trying desperately to revive the corpse, I’m sure a bailout will arise from this grave eventually, since our elected officials won’t let a minor detail like “it’s opposed by the majority of American voters” stop them from passing an expensive piece of legislation.
And there's more commentary where that
came from, by God. Why don't y'all mosey on over to The Art of the Possible
and check it out?
