74–25: The hucksters have it!

Half an hour ago (just after 9 EST), the Senate passed another version of the bailout bill that failed in the House.

In congressional newspeak for yet another death warrant for the dollar, it is referred to as the "Financial Markets" bill.

To get a good picture of the vile disregard these lying, hypocritical cretin have for U.S. taxpayers, take the example of Senator Dianne Feinstein (D-CA).

Here's what she said about the bailout the other day (my emphasis):

Sen. Dianne Feinstein's office has heard from about 50,000 constituents since Congress began considering a financial rescue plan about a week ago - and "only one of a thousand supports it - whatever it is," the California Democrat said. . . .

Feinstein described one source of the outrage: "I'm told that the reason the Treasury secretary doesn't want limits on executive compensation is because he believes that an executive then won't bring his company in to partake in any program that is set up.

"Well, here's my response to that," she said. "We can put that executive on his boat, take that boat out in the ocean and set it on fire, if that's how he feels. That's what should happen, or his company doesn't come in."

The senator tends to side on most issues with Democratic liberals and moderates, but her feedback from home was similar to what conservatives were hearing. "People call us and say they're really against bailing out fat-cats. That's a big issue," she said.

Of course her fat ass won't be in that burning boat with all those "fat cats." No! Being set asea in a flaming wreck is for the other 99.9% of us taxpayers. Ms. Feinstein voted aye.
