Final Bailout Vote Tally

A list of congressmen who changed their votes between the first and second time is posted at the Campaign for Liberty. A full list of the votes can be found at the house website.  Gresham Barret, who I spoke positively about before, change his vote and voted for the bill.  The two congressmen from New Hampshire and King from Iowa kept their no votes along with a total of 171 congressmen against.  Bob Inglis voted for the bill again because he fears that doing nothing is worse than doing something.  Too bad he’s wrong.

The stock market fell after the bailout was passed.  Not that it means much this soon, but it must not have immediately increased investor confidence.
