Taddeo calls bailout 'flawed bill'

Democrat Annette Taddeo opposes the $700 bailout agreement reached by Congressional leaders Sunday, saying it is a start but does not do enough for homeowners and taxpayers.

"This bill fails to address the collapsing housing market, the root cause of the crisis," Taddeo said in a statement Monday. "I do not support spending $700 billion in taxpayer money on a flawed bill."

She also said Democrats in Congress and her opponent, Republican Rep. Ileana Ros-Lehtinen, should do more with the legislation to help South Florida families.
