Pork for the Bankers

Pork for the Bankers

Just got the word that the Senate is going to vote on the bailout bill tomorrow. The changes are apparently mainly in the area of loading it up with pork to grease its passage. Odds of passage? Pretty high, since most Senators don’t have to face voters this year. The idea is to get it passed in the Senate and then see if they can scrounge the votes in the House in one last big hurrah.
