Mike Turner Votes “No” On Bailout ; Boehner Blames Pelosi For Bill’s Defeat

Mike Turner joined 132 other Republican Representatives today and voted “No” on approving the $700 Billion Bailout.  The bill failed by a vote of 205 Yes to 228 No.  Altogether, 65 Republicans voted “Yes,” and 133 Republicans voted “No,” while 140 Democrats voted “Yes” and 95 Democrats voted “No.”

John Boehner, House Republican Leader, blamed Speaker Nancy Pelosi for the defeat of the bill saying that her speech was so partisan that it caused some Republican congressman, who otherwise would have supported the vote, to vote “No.”

This is what Pelosi said in her speech:  “It is a number that is staggering, but tells us only the costs of the Bush Administration’s failed economic policies — policies built on budgetary recklessness, on an anything goes mentality, with no regulation, no supervision, and no discipline in the system.”
