Rep. Paul Kanjorski (D-Pa.) on Friday said that big egos on Capitol Hill are hampering the massive financial bailout package.

Kanjorski, who faces a difficult reelection race, is chairman of the House Financial Services subcommittee on Capital Markets, Insurance, and Government-Sponsored Enterprises.

Kanjorski added, "Now, what we have to do is open that door for the House Republicans, bring them on in and say, 'Guys, you know, we can't cast your idea aside.' Let's listen to it...I think we have to allow them to talk their idea out. We have to be willing to listen."
