Actually, the BUSH and Democratic plan is the one that failed. It was the compromise that came about by Rep Boehner [R-OH] and his little group that mugged Bush, McCain and the Dems.

Need a more clear question.

If it was "who has control of passing the bill?" that would be Congress which had Democratic control with BlueDog Democrats and Conservative Republicans voting as a block. So CONTROL went to the tangent.

If it was "who has control of the money once the bill was passed?" that would be Treasury which had Republican [or more accurately NeoCon] control and did not put in place controls or stipulations to govern HOW the monies were to be used.

If it was "who has control of the recipients of the money?" that would have been Paulson under Bush and now is Geithner. Let's hope Geithner does a better job of maintaining scrutiny than Paulson did.
