Boehner sells out

House of Representatives Minority Leader John Boehner (R-OH) has come out in support of the bailout. Conservative Congressman Mike Pence (R-IN) is against the bailout. Congressman Shadegg is asking for input. We have not heard anything definitive from other members of the Arizona delegation.

The bailout is wildly unpopular with a broad cross section of the American public. The bailout could be a good opportunity for Republicans to distinguish themselves from Democrats, who will likely vote for the bill. It will be especially interesting to see if Giffords and Mitchell vote for the bill and if Bee and Schweikert are able to exploit the incumbents’ votes.
