Weprin: What’s Up With Republicans?

Councilman David Weprin, a Democrat from Queens, sees a funny side in the failure of the $700 billion Wall Street bailout bill in the House.

“It’s very ironic that it’s the Republicans who are responsible for the federal markets tanking," he said. "It was a Republican administration pushing a Republican package and it’s the Republicans who usually are defending business interests.”

“It’s kind of an ironic, bizarre twist of politics,” he said.
