Bailout Bill Passes House

The so-called Emergency Economic Stabilazation Act of 2008 has passed the US House 263-171. 172 Democrats and 91 Republicans joined to pass the bill. Republican Zach Wamp changed his vote from Monday's tally in the Tennessee delegation:

Cooper, Cohen, Gorden, Tanner, Wamp

Blackburn, Lincoln Davis, David Davis, Duncan

I guess that confirms Lincoln Davis is running for Governor in 2010 on the Democratic side (though that's basically been known for some time).

I hope this bill works. I still don't believe this will get us out of what we've gotten into but it's done so let's hope it does what we've been told it will do.
