Pelosi’s actions today were totally negligent. She should never have brought the bill to the floor if she didn’t have the votes. Her tirade didn’t help either, and if that caused anyone to change their vote and surprise her then the calls for her resignation should be even loader.
Bringing the bailout bill to the floor without the votes to win led directly to the sell off on Wall Street. Her negligence led to $1.2 trillion dollar loss in equities.
I really feel for retirees. Anyone who pulls out today will have lost a lot and if they don’t they may risk more. AARP should lead a campaign for her removal as Speaker.
