Jeb Hensarling Ain't Too Hot on the "New" Bailout Bill Either
The Senate will vote tonight on an altered version of President Bush's $700-billion bailout bill. And, far as Rep. Jeb Hensarling figures, the Senate will give it the okey-dokey before bailing out of Washington, "putting the House in a take-it-or-leave-it position on Thursday." And that isn't sitting well with the Dallas resident: Hensarling, the head of the 104-member strong Republican Study Committee, has already voted against the bailout bill once -- and is suggesting today that he's going to do so again tomorrow. Because, as he told his fellow conservatives in a missive today: "The RSC is proposing a number of alternatives and continues to fight for a legislative package that would solve the credit crisis, protect taxpayers, and not fundamentally alter our nation’s free market system.” --Robert Wilonsky
