Swallowed up in a political tide that threatens to turn America into a socialist economy, only a handful of Republican House members are fighting back.
In what may very well be the last stand for the ideas of the free market, many Republican House members are saying no to the takeover of the financial arm of the American economy by the U.S. government. Accordingly, the vote is considered likely to be close.
The vote will be defined by whether or not those Republicans can hold togetther and persuade a few economically conservative Democrats to join them. It is also accepted at this point that once the bill clears the house the Senate will almost certainly pass it.
The only small glimmer of hope should the bill pass is that Democrats will have to defend voting for it, and some of those might lose their seats. Regardless of how it turns out, it is likely to be politically ugly.
