This Morning On The Stephanie Miller Show

Rep. Jay Inslee (D-WA) calls in at 6:30am to talk about the efforts House Dems have made this week to do something about the energy crisis.

Wall Street plunged again yesterday as anxieties about the financial system ran high after the government’s bailout of insurer A.I.G. failed to restore investors’ confidence in banking stocks. The Dow lost about 450 points, giving it a shortfall of more than 800 so far this week.

Key GOP-ers on Capitol Hill blasted the Treasury Department and the Federal Reserve yesterday for orchestrating an $85 billion bailout of A.I.G., and the White House for not informing them of the plan. Dems blamed the Bush Administration for the financial crisis, while the White House pointed a finger at congress.
