How Would You Vote on the Bailout? Part 2

By Joe Sims

Rereading this, I see I didn't say how I myself would vote. Well let me say it plain: I would have voted no, on Monday and I would vote no again tomorrow. I don't see what else a self-respecting representative of a working-class party could do. I mean what would be our role in Congress if not to champion the interests of the poor, the oppressed, of those working for a living?

Fact is, that bill champions the interests of the rich and wealthy. I think we have to lay the basis today for the fight tomorrow. And tomorrow begins on November 4th. So again, let me know what YOU think. Correct me if I'm wrong!
