Once again, no Republicans voted in favor of it, which begs the question of why Obama feels the need to cowtow to them. [UPDATE: According to a Politico report, Obama may be getting wise and giving up on bipartisanship from now on].
I also wonder how many of those Republicans voted for the almost-as-huge bank bailout (aka "TARP"). Seems like a risky strategy for those Republicans running for re-election. I mean, you vote to save Wall Street, but vote against saving Main Street? That's not going to go down well….
