Business hits back after Congress bailout vote
By Kevin Drawbaugh
WASHINGTON (Reuters) – Business lobbyists scolded the U.S. Congress and threatened political payback after lawmakers handed the financial services industry a stunning defeat by killing a $700-billion Wall Street bailout.
The vote Monday in the House of Representatives to reject the rescue plan, proposed by the Bush administration September 20 and modified by congressional leaders over the past week, came as a rude shock to powerful and deeply entrenched interests.
Major banks and executives from the financial sector overall donate heavily to political campaigns and spend a lot of money on government lobbying to push their agenda.
The titans of high finance don’t always get their way on Capitol Hill, but the 228-205 House vote was unexpected and drew a flurry of private sector counter-punches.
The U.S. Chamber of Commerce, the nation’s largest business lobbying group and a vocal bailout proponent, responded quickly after the vote with a letter to all members of Congress.
“Make no mistake: when the aftermath of congressional inaction becomes clear, Americans will not tolerate those who stood by and let the calamity happen,” said the letter, urging reconsideration and passage of “financial rescue legislation.”
“The chamber will score votes on, or in relation to, this issue in our annual ‘How They Voted’ scorecard,” it said.
House members who supported the bailout have received about 50 percent more in campaign contributions from the finance, insurance and real estate sectors in their congressional careers than those who opposed the emergency legislation, said a campaign finance watchdog group after the vote.
The Center for Responsive Politics, using data going back to 1989, said members of Congress who helped defeat the bailout had, on average, collected nearly $590,000 from the industries most affected over their careers, while the bailout bill’s supporters had received $883,000.
