Republican Representative Mike Pence of Indiana’s statement.
â€œToday Congress took a stand for the American taxpayer and free markets. The American people rejected this corporate bailout and today the Peopleâ€™s House did likewise.
â€œIt is now imperative that Congress come together and develop a response to the crisis facing our financial markets that reflects the American peopleâ€™s belief in personal responsibility and fiscal discipline.
â€œThere are alternatives to the massive federal bailout that Congress rejected. I look forward to working with my colleagues in both parties to develop a response to this crisis that puts taxpayers first and preserves the essential freedom of the American marketplace.â€
