Mario Diaz-Balart: "Major, major reservations"

Mario Diaz-Balart, who like his fellow members of Congress has been flooded with calls and e-mails from constituents, says he has "major, major" reservations with the rescue plan to be voted on in about an hour.

"We've gotten a ton of calls from people who are just very upset that we're in this position to start with," the Miami Republican said. "There's outrage and rightfully so."

Diaz-Balart says he's read and re-read the bill and is listening to the House debate, but has "serious reservations" about the proposal.

"I still have some major, major problems with it," Diaz-Balart said, adding that he would favor a plan that "requires Wall Street to put up its money first."
