Anger at bailout turns on fat salaries for Wall Street execs

Both Democrats and Republicans report that thousands of constituents have called to oppose the Bush administration's bailout. That opposition has increased the stakes as congressional negotiators promise to reach a deal by 6 p.m. Sunday. Some members of Congress clearly are feeling the pressure. Sen. Dianne Feinstein, D.-Calif., suggested any executive who keeps his company out of the bailout because of proposed limits on compensation should be "put on his boat" and the boat set on fire at sea.
