Default Congress to meet again on Thursday?

Are you kidding me. Lock those bums in a small cement room with no food or water and don't let them out until they agree to a plan. Then after they come out, show them the cheaply built $10 chinese made raft that they will get to try and float to Cuba on and send them on their way.

THURSDAY?!?! Are you kidding me? WTF are they gonna do on Tuesday and Wednesday? Fat lazy bums, people, get rid of them all. Republicans and Democrats alike. Vote all these bums out and do it now!

They have a 5% approval rating as a whole. Yet we all think "our" senator or congressman is okay. Well if they are 5% as a whole, we all need to our duty and fire 95% of them and do it now!

I find iot kind of fuuny that Barney frank and schumer are all for this when in 1985 when they wanted to reuglate and oversee Fannie mae and Freddie Mac they rejected it and encoiraged them to give more loan to those you couldn't get a loan anywhere else. Frank even said that the government could bale them out if the loans went bad.

Frank is the biggest bumbling idiot in all of congress.

The markets are open today and tomorrow. What happens today is pretty important for a lot of investors, because this is the last day of the quarter. A lot of people are going to be very unhappy when they see their 401(k) statements in a week or two!

They are no longer 401 (k)'s, more like 01 (k) and if this continues it'll be a 1 (k)

They need to let this alone. No bailout.

Exactly, I don't see why all these " real americans" are clamoring for the money infusion. Shows that historically americans vote and pander against their economic interest. The fact that the bailout plan didn't pass was a good thing, get with the program.

How bad can this bailout issue be if these congressional crooks can take a holiday today? This whole bail-out seems so fishy..it reaks!
