The Failure of the Bailout Bill

As soon as I saw the news of the failed bailout, I searched for some info on who voted for what. House.gov has the full breakdown (how knew that even existed?) and this article from the post had some nice commentary: "It's no coincidence then that of the 205 Members who voted in support of the bill today, there are only two -- Reps. Chris Shays (R-Conn.) and Jon Porter (R-Nev.) -- who find themselves in difficult reelection races this fall. The list of the 228 "nays" reads like a virtual target list for the two parties." (Oh, and I'm back from vacation.)
