It was SO necessary for Nancy Pelosi to give this speech. Number One - to let the Bush Administration know that it wasn't getting away with its atrocious power grab. Number Two - to point out the disastrous policies that led to the necessity for a bailout. Number Three - To state publicly that this would be the last bailout, once and for all that it is not the policy of the US Congress to bail out bad investments. And finally, Number Four - to point out what tremendous sacrifice it would be for Democrats who opposed the policies of the last 8 years to have to step in and bail Bush out.
The speech ends:
As long as in the households of America, this crisis is being felt very immediately and being addressed at a different level, we must come back, and we will come back as soon and as often as it is necessary to make the change that is necessary. And before long we will have a new Congress, a new president of the United States, and we will be able to take our country in a new direction.
I bet it's that last part that upset the Republicans!
