House Republican leader says no revote on bailout Monday

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.

    I am utterly appalled!

    We have a global financial crisis, largely due to recless and greedy speculators on Wall Street. This crisis affect everyones daily life. Also ours here in Sweden. So we bite our nails while watching the US news, awaiting for your politicians to correct this financial mess.

    How shocking then so see Congress behaving just as immature and recless as Wall Street, rejecting the much needed bailout plan!!!

    The world looks on in disbelief, while Congress turns into a Kindergarten. Think again! Act mature! Please show true leadership setting petty feelings and partisan needs aside.

    "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."

    What kind of stupid are you? This mess has been brewing for a lot longer then 2 years, and the Treasury Department falls under the Executive branch anyway. What about the years when the Republicans controlled the House and the Senate and set the stage for all this? And you don't blame the 108 Republicans who voted against the bill, you blame the 97 Democrats who also voted against it? You're crazy and dumb.

  6. Vote Out the LOSERS

    Nov 4 Voter's Guide

    Any one else____YES

    Since the race is "too close to call" by almost ALL accounts. We Americans who are upset with The Government (dems and repubs) should use this opportunity to SEND A MESSAGE TO THEM and vote third party all the way.

    Since my Senator and Rep "don't have time to respond individually" to my concerns, then I better send them a stronger message!!! NO MORE! No Way, No How, No more Democrats or Republicans.

    Dear CNN,
    95 I say 95 will be the number that haunts you forever. Having been a lifelong Democratic, I can not understand why 95 delagates ( Democratics voted against the so called bailout ) yet CNN seems to want to put it on the Republicans. I have watched you guys everyday for the last 9 years. NO MORE NO MORE NO MORE I will continue to watch LOU DOBBS but thats it. You guys are not telling the truth or you just think we the people are stupid. We also watch whats going on tv, PLEASE not another John Kerry who do you folks think you are ? As much as I would like to put everything on the republicans I just can't. WE THE PEOPLE DON'T TRUST YOU OR FOX WE NEVER SEEM TO GET THE TRUTH. You guys are a JOKE Thank God for LOU DOBBS
