Very quickly: word from the Hill is that they are close to a deal.

I say, Hell No.

Read this, this, and this.

Short version of my thoughts:

1) There are massive systemic dysfunctions in the financial system

2) That is not the same as an imminent credit crisis.

3) The bailout deal, even as amended, may very well not work, and certainly won’t be particularly equitable.

4) Vote no.
