Colo. delegation votes 4-3 against bailout bill

DENVER, Colorado ” The final bailout bill passed by Congress Friday didn’t change the minds of anyone in the Colorado delegation.

All three representatives from the Denver area voted for the bailout ” Democrats Diana DeGette and Ed Perlmutter and Republican Tom Tancredo.

Voting no were Republicans Marilyn Musgrave and Doug Lamborn and Democrats Mark Udall and John Salazar.

The final total vote was 263-171 in the House, a comfortable margin that was 58 more votes than the measure garnered in Monday’s stunning defeat.
