Democratic Response to Failed Vote

Democrats have a plan: tomorrow they will put forward a strictly Democratic proposal (probably restoring all the points the Administration didn't want: bankruptcy negotiations on mortgages, stock investments in banks, more regulation, etc.), pass it on a strictly party line vote, and dare the administration to veto it.

Yes: A lot of chatter is that since the Republicans didn't want to support a bi-partisan compromise, then Dems should use their majority to pass a strictly Democratic bill and let the Republicans go to hell.

The they will have effectively shown that Republicans in the House scuttled the compromise and the Bush administration will be forced to adopt a Democratic solution. Brilliant.
