Verb tense[edit]

If someone has the time... the verb tense in this article are all over the map. According to the Style Guide articles need to be written in the past tense or present perfect tense - so "The US House of Representatives rejected a bill on the USD 700 billion bail out of US banks." not "The US House of Representatives has rejected..." "If passed, the bailout plan would have allowed..." rather than "If it was passed, the bailout plan would allow...", and so on.
