Redstate gives an excellent explanation: Congressional Republicans MUST insist on the removal of all of these earmarks as their price for signing on to the legislation.
And they can do it, too. The American people are so overwhelmingly opposed to the bailout plan that Speaker Pelosi dares not pass the bill without Republican support. Read all.

Mark Levin! AUDIO!
Less than 7% of Americans favored.
"The American people will never knowingly adopt socialism. But, under the name of 'liberalism,' they will adopt every fragment of the socialist program, until one day America will be a socialist nation, without knowing how it happened."2004: Democrats in their own words Covering up the Fannie Mae, Freddie Mac Scam that caused our Economic Crisis. Some 'retired' or in FED prison.
( U.S. Socialist Party presidential candidate 1940, 1944 and 1948)
At a 2004 hearing see Democrat after Democrat covering up and attacking the regulations to protect Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac (their Cash Cows) that are now destroying our economy because the Democrats let them cheat...
Right this minute Nancy Pelosi argues that the "padded" bill, being rejected by Republicans is an "Unpatriotic Act?"... Dems cooked books, traded multi-million dollar contributions for programs... Five media outlets, a partisan line, and political attempts to push their candidate.
And a big fat slave bill is on Bush's desk...Is this even Constitutional?
Update: The deal is sealed.
Harry (incompetent) Reid looks like he just won the lottery.
VOTE THEM OUT!!!
How Congressional Democrats Can Pass the Paulson Plan and Dodge the Bullet
Today we find out that not only did Obama train ACORN workers in his past, but he represented the scandal-plagued socialist organization in court:
"The housing bill now before Congress would set up a slush fund for community organizations such as Acorn. But Acorn has gone quiet in its lobbying for the bill this week with the news that one of its employees -- the brother of Acorn founder Wade Rathke -- had stolen nearly $1 million from the group.Today, even many historians sympathetic to FDR and his policies concede that they failed to end the Depression (unemployment remained in double digits until World War II) and that some of them worsened the lot of the poor and unemployed more than they helped. Econometric studies show that much of the increased government spending generated by the New Deal was transferred to politically powerful interest groups who could help FDR and his allies win reelection rather than to the poor and needy.
Mr. Rathke decided not to alert law enforcement or the organization's board, and kept his brother employed at Acorn until last month. "Is this the kind of group we want getting taxpayer money?" asks Rep. Ed Royce (R., Calif.) more.
