Bailout Accord Reached - Pending Written Document!The WaPo details the agreement.
The hard part now is to keep the "understanding" in a form the pols agree matches what they agreed to.
A key here is the apparent GOP-Pushed dropping of a provision which in colvoluted fashion would have ended up funding ACORN the giant organization dedicated to providing new DEM voters in most states. What a fiasco that would have been.
I do not agree with either the bailout, nor the form it is in, but the thing has apparently taken on a life of its own with every politico in Washington seeming to feel if they don't approve something and the DOW tanks, they are in trouble in November...a probably true fact.
Another fine example of BIG & GETTING BIGGER government at work.
