Josh Marshall and Paul Krugman (Update: and Brad DeLong) say no deal on the bailout. Josh points out that the lobbyists are already pushing for no strings attached.
This Congress has no record of showing any backbone. The media has already bought the notion that there must be a bailout, and will criticize the Dems for “playing politics” with this and they will buckle not only losing the fight but again looking weak.
No Deal? Haha. They’ll give them everything they want.
