Me thinks politically the Democrats are hesitant to act without substantial Republican support to avoid it as a campaign issue (the yell of socialism) djf

Dave,

Can anyone on IP explain how the Republican minority in the House can block the “bail out” when the Democrats control both houses of Congress and the Senate Republicans are for the proposal and won’t filibuster? Why can’t Pelosi and Reid simply ram it through? What’s the point of having the majority if it can’t be wielded in a situation such as this? The White House will sign whatever the Congress enacts so is the problem lack of Congressional leadership?

Bob
