Who Is in the Majority?

Nancy Pelosi, Harry Reid, and other Democrats who have forgotten how to count this morning are blaming House Republicans, while taking a potshot at John McCain for good measure, for derailing budget negotiations over the financial services bailout plan they are attempting, along with the Republican President's financial advisers, to railroad through Congress?

Of course, House Republicans can't stop anything. They are in the minority. Even if every single House Republican opposed the plan -- and nothing close to that would actually happen -- those favoring the plan could ram it through.

The truth is that the Democrats want political cover as they bail out their Wall Street friends. Congressional Democrats love to rail against corporate welfare, but at the end of the day, their desire to deliver for their own group of corporate friends causes them to resent the final stand of a group of fiscally conservative Republicans who really do resist corporate welfare on principle.
