WASHINGTON (CNN) - Rep. John Boehner, the Republican leader in the House of Representatives, says the chamber will not vote again Monday on a $700 billion plan to bailout the financial services sector, after it was dramatically defeated on the floor.
Watch: 'It's not Wall Street's fault'
These past years of GOP rule have been a winner take all grab for earmarks, tax breaks for the rich, deregulation for Wall Street and now when the whole economy is about to collapse from their greed, they wash their hands of any responsibility!
VOTE DEMOCRAT IN NOVEMBER and get rid of the greedy corrupt republicans.
There you go. Another republican who doesn't care.....
Bush really is a lame duck if he cannot rally the GOP anomore.
What kind of party do you belong to? Republican party is in disaray.
Peloser, Reid, and Dodd let 97 DEMS vote against in order to garner more polling profit for Obama at cost $$$ to YOU!!!
TWO YEARS and NOTHING from the DEM lead congress.
Sorry- Monday as in next Monday or Monday as in later today?
What is up? Can someone explain to me what the hold up is?
Nancy Pelosi should be in JAIL...idiot.
They need to give McGimmick time to halt his campaign and hobble back to the rescue again.
He fixed things real good the last time he went. Maybe this time he's actually read the legislation.

REP'S ARE RIGHT. THE TAX PAYERS SHOULDN'T PAY FOR THE DEMS ,REPS AND WALL STREET'S MISTAKE.
John Boehner is the name I'll remember when I lose my job and can't afford to buy a loaf of bread during the midst of the coming depression. Thank you republicans for proving that you put country and the American people last.
The GOP is holding the American Economy hostage... what do they want now?? 0% taxes for those who earn over 1 million? 0% capital gains tax (that will cause a rush). free dinner at red robbin??
I'm so looking forward to kicking these GOP slime out of our congress and the white house.
Outstanding. For once in many, many years, I'm finally proud that my supposedly conservative Republican representatives actually strap on a pair and stand firm in conservative principles.
Stop the socialist takeover of our nation and our economy.
Aggreed! Something has to be done but it doesn't have to be this plan. The draft ((if you had time to read it) gave WAAYYYY Too much power to the treasurer and not enough protection to the taxpayers. Our reps (senate, house and pres.) should be doing better than this!
Boehner, Blunt and the GOP House leadership are in a completely untenable position; having effectively guranteed their own President the vote of their Caucus in the House, they failed to deliver. They should resign immediately.
As for the two thirds of GOP members who voted against this package, they show their utter disregard for the ordinary people of America – there is now clearly only one solution to this crisis: an Obama Presidency and a strengthened Democratic Congress.
OBAMA/BIDEN 08 – THE TIME HAS COME
So much for McCain saving the deal and the day.
Ha ha... the bill fails, but for all of the wrong reasons. Repugs are cowards.
Does anyone out there know what "short term credit" is?
That's what this failure to do anything will hurt.
That means, companies (most companies) will not be able to pay for raw materials, payroll, interest on existing loans, etc.
This will bring even tighter credit to the world economy.
There will be no help for families being forclosed on. There wil be more lost jobs. Then more forclosures..... Ben Bernanke is a top expert on the Great Depression. Listen to him
Republicans are blaming democrats on Bailout failure but the fact is ...
Among Republicans, 65 voted in favor and 133 against
Among Democrats, 140 voted in favor and 95 against
Republicans/McCain playing dirty politics, they really dont care about American people, its really not gonna bother them even if country goes into depression..
wake up republicans, this generation people are smart – they not gonna fall for old McCain tricks – I think american people are not that stupid.
While I hate this bailout – I understand that things will get worse in our nation without it.
The Republican's are in choas.
Obama need only to stay the course and the GOP will continue to self destruct.
THIS IS NOT POLITICS... STOP PLAYING WITH OUR MONEY
I'm taking my money (what's left of it) out of my IRA's and putting it into my safe annunity account – Congress has sold us all out led by Nancy Pelosi – a millionaire – what does she care.
Because of a low level of political discourse, people did not really understand the causes of the failures and the reasons and effects of the proposed cure. The distrust of government, sewn by republican philosophy over 30 years has helped bring this about. Republican lack of concern for education (they still want to eliminate the Department of Education from the Government) has led to an undereducated population unable to deal with emergency any more than the government can.
Hey republican party, you destroyed my country. I don't support you.
