Like a Kick in No-Man's Land.

I am still sorting out what happened last night and what could potentially be signed into law tomorrow. The House voted no to a bailout on Monday and so they added another $105 Billion to the price tag and it passed in the Senate. Guess it wasn't a big enough kick in the crotch. Hopefully we see a resurgence of kids playing with wooden arrows soon. Otherwise we'll know this thing didn't work. This is the equivalent of the government coming around your neighborhood and collecting Between $5,000-$6,000 for every family in America. I think even democrats might start clinging to their guns if this was realized.

How about discussing some alternatives? Rep. Mike Pence of Indiana and Rep. Jeb Hensarling of Texas have put together some ideas that would cost much less and accomplish much more. Here is a link to the plan in formal form.
