Senator David Vitter on H.R. 1424 Senate version of Emergency Economic Stabilization Act of 2008

"an unprecedented expansion of government power and discretion...is the product of an appalling lack of political leadership -- first 'crying fire' in a crowded movie theater, then demanding that the only escape is to take dangerous action like tearing down the walls, though there are plenty of exit doors in sight."

"we dont need to use seven hundred billion dollars of hard-earned taxpayer money, in this way, cross this line, set this precedent."
