Roll-Call Vote on Bailout
- The clerk.house.gov servers are likely to be swamped for the next several hours, but here's a copy of the roll-call vote on H.R. 3997, the "Pelosi Compromise":
As noted earlier, the House Democrats could have easily passed this bill, so a large portion of the "credit" goes to Democrats ranting against "Billionaire Bailouts" and "The Crash of Capitalism", but the sad number is that only 65 Republicans voted against nationalizing the U.S. economy:
Democrat: Yes 140 No 95
Republican: Yes 65 No 133 NV 1
Total Yes 205 No 228Bill
