Well, there you have it everybody. The bailout money which has never actually helped us is being used yet again. Polls are overwhelmingly against the bailout and people even know it failed.WASHINGTON ? The Senate on Thursday voted to release the remaining $350 billion of a historic $700 billion financial rescue law, despite objections from Republicans who called the law a failure.
Senators voted 52-42 against blocking the money. Thirty-three Republicans opposed the aid, along with eight Democrats and one Independent. The vote was a victory for President-elect Barack Obama, who personally lobbied senators for the funds.
