U.S. Senate to vote on Wall Street bailout tonight

Posted by kayinmaine on October 1, 2008

Don’t you love how some of the Senators are saying that it’s the fault of the House of Representatives for calling this a bailout for Wall Street instead of what it really is? Yeah yeah, there’s a difference people. Apparently, a ‘rescue’ is different than a ‘bailout’ and I’ll show you how below. Of course, when one puts lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig but slightly prettier. Agree?

Alrighty then.

SIDEBAR NOTE: What do you think the Senate will do? Will your Senator vote in favor of the bill or vote against? Do you think the ‘rescue’ bill will be killed again or do you think the jackboot lickers like Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine will jump on this horse and ride it like a woman?

Just in case you’re not sure of which ‘boat’ you like or dislike at the moment, let me show the difference, okay? The House of Representatives put forth a BAILING OUT THE BOAT. Here’s what that looks like…

Can someone give this man a bucket?

And then so your mind will be completely clear, here’s what the Senate put forth, a ‘RESCUE BOAT’:

(picture credit)

Not much difference except one boat is bigger and nicer than the other one and the other difference would be the CEO of Lehman Brothers (or maybe AIG, not sure) is in one of the boats stuffing his face with our money, see? This should help in making your decision as to which one you like…if any.

    Why are we even bothering to have an election? I mean isn’t it plain to everybody that the GOP isn’t really running a candidate this cycle? So why are we doing all this bullshit with debates and what not? Is it because we’re still pretending that george bush is the President of the United States? Is this bullshit just something to keep us occupied while we wait another two months to send that fuckhead packing? If that’s it, then, let’s just stop pretending. God knows how many more people bush could kill in two months. Let’s cut our losses and stop this make believe game now. I don’t want to play anymore.

    “The Senate”…a body wealthy elitists who support their like brethren absolutely and totally!

    Benjamin Franklin was against the concept of a Senate and we should now realize why so. The Senate is a gentlemens club and over the years especially since WWII has become filled with very wealthy individuals who act as nothing but running dogs for corporatist sponsors.

    In recent years I realize that our founders should have founded a parliamentary form of government which have allowed votes of confidence in our leaders prior to the end of their term along with the possibility of a host of parties like in Europe, Australia and elsewhere rather than the pustiferous two party system that’s now merged into the “republicrat” party giving the American people really “no choice” in November when it comes to the bottom line.

    These guys have thrown in a bunch of percs/bait for the unwashed masses with their Senate bill, but it’s just that bait so they House can climb onboard and offer the same and feel they’ve done their job when in fact they’ve incurred monstrous “debt” against a nation that’s already dead-assed broke and in serious financial trouble.

    The only people it will help is the Bushista’s and their close cotiderie of wealthy advisors such as Paulson who supposedly has/had a 700 million dollar fortune associated with Goldman Sachs. No doubt Paulson’s portfolio is in serious jeopardy along with a host of other wealthy “rethuglicans” and they want their U.S. “tax slaves” to bail them out…!

    This whole plan stinks to high heaven and it is my hope beyond all hope that the second attempt in the House fails since they control the purse strings of government and “not” the Senate.

    I’ve recently started my own blog under the auspices of the Capitol Hill Blue site. I welcome people to read my thoughts and possibly participate.

    Oh boy. Sarah Palin has caused this man to have a fatwa on his head:


    She is dangerous for our country and others. That’s all I’m going to say.

    The vote in the Senate is getting ready to happen. *biting nails* I have a feeling it’s not going to pass just from what I heard when the Democrats were speaking tonight on the floor of the Senate. Some Democrats are going to support it, of course, but some are not.

    One third of Senators are up for re-election this fall so I imagine many of the “nay” votes will be from this group. These bills are being formulated with such speed that our politicos haven’t had the time to sell them to the voting public. Some don’t even know that much has been changed from the original Bush-Paulson plan that was truly a GIFT to the Wall Street Republicans.

    Hi Kay,

    I posted my thoughts concerning the Rothschild connection on my CHB blog. Possibly you’d get back, but if not I thought I’d just give you notice. I think you’ll find my commentary interesting.

    Thanks Carl! I read it and I’m more nervous now than I was yesterday. 😉

    Belonging to Sen. Russ Feingold’s Progressive Patriots, I got this email from Sen. Feingold this morning explaining his “NO” vote last night:

    “I will oppose the Wall Street bailout plan because though well intentioned, and certainly much improved over the administration’s original proposal, it remains deeply flawed. It fails to offset the cost of the plan, leaving taxpayers to bear the burden of serious lapses of judgment by private financial institutions, their regulators, and the enablers in Washington who paved the way for this catastrophe by removing the safeguards that had protected consumers and the economy since the great depression. The bailout legislation also fails to reform the flawed regulatory structure that permitted this crisis to arise in the first place. And it doesn’t do enough to address the root cause of the credit market collapse, namely the housing crisis. Taxpayers deserve a plan that puts their concerns ahead of those who got us into this mess.”

    -Senator Russ Feingold, October 1, 2008
