Delahunt's Constituents, on Bailout

This article is more than 11 years old.

The Senate has passed a financial bailout bill, paving the way for the House to vote again, possibly Friday. By 74 to 25 last night, the Senators approved a revised version of the $700 billion package the Representatives had rejected on Monday.

Among those who then voted against the bailout were three Massachusetts Congressmen, including Bill Delahunt of Quincy.

While there's been a lot in the bailout debate of rhetoric about "Wall Street and Main Street," in Quincy, that would be Hancock Street. We sent WBUR's Meghna Chakrabarti there to measure the mood.
