    Your Honor,
    Will there be a public hanging? Part of Nancy’s rebels.



  2. Bill Manzi says:

    Nancy agreed to deliver 50 percent of her caucus. She delivered 63 percent. She held her end up. Sorry Jules but it is the Republican Presidents bill, which John McCain assured us that he had worked out a bipartisan deal on. I guess he forgot to tell the Republicans.


  3. Bob LeBlanc says:

    The President’s bill was and is a bad bill because it forgives all the greed of the past and punishes no one!

    Rep Frank should not have sought bipartisan agreement but produced a Democratic bill. A Democratic bill would have capped interest rates on credit cards..would have capped interest rates on mortgage loans..would have forced executives of companies who profited for so many years to pay restitution and much more to stop bleeding the American worker.

    Lynch, Tierney and Delahunt voted for the American worker and not the lobbyist interest.
