Henry, Row This Boat Ashore

Via the (sometimes) wise commenters at Calculated Risk:

"Yes, Congress passed legislation to enable Paulson to do this [take over Fannie and Freddie), back in July. In the House, the bill (H.R. 3221), was passed 272-152 and here is the roll call vote. The Senate passed it, too, by the margin of 72-13, and the roll-call is here. Neither McCain nor Obama voted on it."

Note that neither of our presidential candidates had the guts to vote on this most controversial piece of legislation. Nice work, guys.
