Repubs vote "no" again - this time about ending TARP funding EARLY!
During the financial reform bill reconcilliation last night -


... given a choice between continuing the 2008 bank bailout and regulating Wall Street, several Republicans voted last night (and almost all of them will ultimately vote) to keep the bailout alive.

Last night, in a scramble to save the bill in the wake of Sen. Scott Brown's (R-MA) objections to the conference report, Democrats worked with moderate Republicans to figure out a new way to pay for Wall Street reform. What they came up with was pretty simple: end the TARP legislation (i.e., the much-maligned bank bailout) early. Every Republican negotiator on the conference committee objected, some vociferously.

Sen. Judd Gregg (R-NH) called it "fraud on the American people."

Not to be outdone, Sen. Mike Crapo (R-ID) called it "smoke and mirrors."

4. So Republicans (who are ALL bad these days)
believe that ending taxpayer bank bailouts is a FRAUD?
I see.
Another commercial for the Democrats in the fall campaign.
