The ball is back on the Houses court and most likely both parties will find 12 more votes to pass the bailout package. Bottom line with gas at $3.86 a gallon and a complete credit freeze many companies will have to cut back and that means JOBS! So some lawmakers are just going to have to hold there nose and pass the bill in the House and then get to the root of how this got so severe and never let it happen again. I just can\’t see House Representatives taking a chance that Main Street won\’t be severely affected.
