I see Democrat strategist Chris Kofinis bloviating on MSNBC about the prospects of passing a bailout bill. Speaker of the U.S. House of Representatives Nancy Pelosi doesn’t want a floor vote on the bill until she is assured that about a hundred House Republicans will go along with the measure. Everybody’s pacing the floor while the House Republicans are huddled in their chambers poring over 106 pages of legislation.
Chris Kofinis is saying that the the House Democrats, the White House, and the Senate don’t like this bill, but they are doing it because it’s what’s good for the country, and that House Republicans are trying to play politics with this instead of doing what’s right for the country.
I have to ask, what country do we live in? The U.S.A.? Or the U.S.S.S.A (The United Soviet Socialist States of America)? This vote is pivotal. This vote tells us whether we are a capitalist democracy, or a socialist bureaucracy. The political risk for bailing out Wall Street is that if the people of the United States voted on the matter directly, we’d retain our capitalist economy, even though it falters from time to time. Since Congress is willing to buck the will of the people, they are fairly confident that incumbency will protect them from blowback as they seem poised to become the elites of a socialist state.
If this is still the U.S.A., then Chris Kofinis is no patriot, and is clueless about what’s good for the country.

if it is so neccesary, then the Democrats would do the right thing for the country and pass the bill with their majority.
