The Bottom Line on House Republicans

If House Republicans are holding out a bit in order to try and shape legislation to conform as much as possible to market principles, I'm all for it.

If they're holding out because they believe that the economy can go forward without the market crisis being addressed very quickly, then, in my view, they're not just wrong . . . they're frighteningly wrong.

Obviously, few know what really lies behind this push -- which makes sense, because if all of us knew, so would Democrats.  Let's just hope that solid common sense is ruling the day, and that this will end up being an episode  vindicating House Republicans' good judgment and conviction.

In other words, let's hope it's a Ronald Reagan moment, not a Ron Paul moment.
