Color Me Confused

How do right wing blogs and talking heads get to blame the Democrats for not passing the bailout bill today when Republicans voted overwhelmingly against it?  I’m not a logician, but it seems unfair for people opposed to the bailout to blame Democrats for the negative impacts of it not passing.

If they push this narrative, it’s time for Democrats in the House and Senate to write a truly progressive bill to restore confidence in the economy.

Compromise be damned.
