GOP Scuttles Bailout Over Hurt Feelings

As a reader on Talking Points Memo called them, the "Crybaby Caucus" Republicans are now claiming that they pulled their support for the financial bailout plan because Nacny Pelosi was mean to them. Is that really how they want to spin this? Has the Republican leadership lost all control over their members? Hilarious.

"Because somebody hurt their feelings, they decide to punish the country."

Read the text of Pelosi's speech.

Video of the speech in question.



Can you imagine what would've happened had the Republicans passed Bush's plan to privatize Social Security: http://www.whitehouse.gov/infocus/social-security/
