While I don't deny this Congress is full of cowards, I don't believe I would have voted for the bailout either. Instead of making my case here, I'll just say that my position is close to this guy's position.

Let's start with Jesse Jackson Jr., co-chair of the Obama campaign.

What if the bill wasn't a good one? I mean, just because they voted against a massive government spending program with money we don't have to take over a huge section of the financial sector of the economy doesn't mean it was a bad vote, does it?

I agree with Frank's assessment. I'm betting that all these critters were from conservative districts where people would rather die from hunger than pay a tax to plant some corn. Being adamant is not the same as being right. It's probably true that bad government and crooked CEOs got us into this fix, but the nature of the fix remains the same. You got to swallow the medicine if you want to get better. You can sort out the villains later in a more leisurely environment.

I know I would - let people plant their own damn corn with the money they save from not paying taxes.

Mostly bad government - and the solution isn't more of the same guys with more money doing the same thing. Is it?
