The Hoosier congressional delegation voted 6-3 against the number-picked-out-of-a-hat bailout:
Democrats Joe Donnelly and Brad Ellsworth and Republican Mark Souder voted to support the bill, while it opposed by Democrats Andre Carson, Baron Hill and Pete Visclosky and Republicans Dan Burton, Steve Buyer and Mike Pence:
Pence voted no because of a belief in personal responsibility and fiscal discipline. Hill said he had been "rushed to judgment by the Bush administration before." Finally, a bipartisan accomplishment I can cheer. Mark Souder was the only Indiana Republican to vote for the plan. You've stayed too long at the party, Mark.
