Republicans Refuse to Take Responsibility

RECEIVED Wed., Oct. 1, 2008

Dear Editor,
    Today on C-SPAN, I watched the entire bailout plan debate on the floor of the House of Representatives. After the bill was defeated, I heard an interview on CNN with some Republican House members who tried to blame the defeat of the bill on Nancy Pelosi’s speech, which came late in the process. For the Republicans to say that Nancy Pelosi's speech had anything to do with how the Republicans voted is ludicrous! Before Pelosi spoke, I listened and watched as Republican after Republican stood up and voiced their vehement opposition to the bill. It is outrageous that the Republicans refuse to take responsibility for their own party’s opposition to the bailout plan. They would rather blame someone else than take responsibility for anything or admit they are wrong about anything. It’s appalling how many people are apparently like that in this country!
