Looking at the recorded vote it amazed me to see the “question” and the title of the bailout bill:

H R 3997 RECORDED VOTE 29-Sep-2008 2:07 PM
QUESTION: On Concurring in Senate Amendment With An Amendment
BILL TITLE: To amend the Internal Revenue Code of 1986 to provide earnings assistance and tax relief to members of the uniformed services, volunteer firefighters, and Peace Corps volunteers, and for other purposes

Funny, who knew it was all about firefighters and Peace Corps volunteers!! This win for the people against the elite is not what I expected Sunday — but it is wonderful. I await the next move by the criminal-in-chief and his posse.
