Bush Urges Democrats to Act Quickly on Bailout Plan

Not surprisingly, President Asshole pushes the world's most obnoxious and unpopular plan:
WASHINGTON — As President Bush urged lawmakers to act quickly on the bailout legislation, Senate Democrats on Monday put forward their version of the rescue plan, including a bold addition aimed at helping homeowners at risk of foreclosure.

President Bush urged the legislators to resist the temptation to add provisions that, he said, “would undermine the effectiveness of the plan.” But it is becoming clear that Democrats have their own ideas about what should be in the plan, who should be helped and who should not.

Oh, of course-- it is all because failure to pass the Bush-Paulson plan "would threaten small business owners and homeowners on Main Street."
