Auto Bailout Dead! No New Bill needed...

The NY Times is reporting that our Senate Republicans came through on preventing the auto bailout. According to the story:
The Senate majority leader, Harry Reid of Nevada, challenged Republican senators earlier Thursday to propose an alternative to the measure approved by the House and to allow swift votes on the competing plans. Mr. McConnell answered that challenge a short while later, saying the Republicans would oppose the White House plan.

Note to Mr. Reid: Just because a bill fails to pass, doesn't mean that the people must want another bill instead. Sometimes, most times I would bet, when a bill doesn't make it, it would be best if the issue was just dropped and you guys moved on to other work... like maybe you can walk to the other side of the building and ask Frank what he has done about that polluted Branchport Creek, or those FEMA flood maps, or Fort Monmouth, or "promoting tourism" or any of the other claims he makes and never comes through on... thanks.
