Bailout Bill

Well, it is Sunday around noon, and it sounds suspiciously like the taxpayer is about to be sold down the river yet again. The bailout bill reportedly is almost complete, to the tune of $700,000,000,000. And since the gov't has only one source of income, and that source is your and my pockets, we are about to be royally and regally s-c-r-e-w-e-d by our representatives in DC.

see new plan here

Plan went from 3 pages to 100+ pages, with all the "gimmie-gimmie add ons

I guess that my skin is getting a bit thinner, but watching TV and seeing Barney Frank and Chris Dodd on the screen, telling me that all of this "crisis" is because the administration failed to oversee things, makes me want to punch the screen. Go back and look at who was SUPPOSED to be was Barney Frank's committee. Who fought against bills reining in Fannie May and was Chris Dodd. Who took LOTS of money from Freddy and Fannie.....want to hazard a guess here?? Who got REALLY NICE deals on their mortgages from Country-Wide, which was very very buddy-buddy with Fannie and Freddy?? Hint hint, first name is Chris, last name starts with D. And then they have the audacity to stand in front of TV cameras and try to tell us how we have to undo this crisis with our hard-earned money!!!!! It is almost enough to make me ill. How about we assist those who need assisting via loans or whatever, so that Joe and Joan taxpayer don't end up getting hit with the bills while those who caused the problem ,or allowed it to happen, walk away fat and happy on my dime.
