WXXA - McNulty and Gillibrand Cast Opposing Votes on Bailout Bill

BREAK IN TRANSCRIPT

It all came down to a vote on the floor of the House Monday afternoon: the bailout package failed 228 to 205. Congressman Mike McNulty was among the 140 Democrats who voted 'yes' on the 700-billion dollar rescue package.

Rep. McNulty said, "This crisis is real, it is serious, it is critical and the politicians of this country cannot walk away from it."

McNulty was clearly frustrated that the bill failed. He arrived back in the Capital Region right after the vote to somewhat of an akward scene. Family and political friends greeted him at Albany International Airport on what was supossed to be his last trip home from Congress before he retires. But with the failure of the bill, McNulty says he will go back.

Rep. McNulty said, "I believe it is the duty of the Congress of the United States to come up with a new product that can lure those additional 13 votes."
