EDITORIAL >>We’re read in Congress
Cong. Vic Snyder’s office tells us the editorial was passed around in Congress, along with a handful of others from the Dallas Morning News, Washington Post and Boston Herald that supported the bailout plan, which we favored only reluctantly as a necessary step toward preventing a deeper recession.
After the House voted down the bill on Monday, some 30 votes switched in support on Friday, allowing for easy passage of the bill, which was also overwhelmingly approved in the Senate two days earlier.
Those votes, if not our editorial, may have saved Main Street and the nation.
