Fossella votes YES on bail out bill

The House just finished voting on HR 3997, the Financial Markets Bill that give the Treasury Department money to intervene in bailing out financial markets.  Vito Fossella voted YES .  The bill failed.

Vito used to work on Wall Street, and he has a lot of Wall Street friends still.

He care more about getting a job after he leaves Congress than doing what's right.

He doesn't care about anyone but himself. I mean, the guy cheated on his wife and ruined his family.

If constituents expect better from him, they deserve to be damned.

I'm glad the bill failed, and I hope Vito can't get a cozy Wall Street job because of it.

Pelosi refused to use the whip today because the the vote was essentially a punt to the Senate. All the vulnerable Reps and Dems (including Dem sub-committee chairs) voted no. All the bulletproof Republicans or Republicans that are likely to lose (like Fossella) voted yes. Today, Vito fell on his sword like a good little boy.

How is it a "punt to the Senate?"
