That's your opinion, also who is 'we'? Are you saying you're a congressman
It's very simple, by keeping the market working as it should we make sure you get everything you need when you need it.
I like your thinking, but it's a few months too late. Why didn't "you" keep the market working in the first place?
Sure there have been failures but this is nothing compared to how things could be.
You're right. We could have avoided this whole thing entirely, or we could avoid rewarding the institutions that caused it, or we could do so in a
responsible manner and without an insane tax burden or a massive new debt.
Without the economy, life as you've come to know it would not exist.
Most of the posts I've read which are against the bailout recognize this, perhaps because it is obvious.
If we give you $7000 each as someone suggested and let the system fail, you will fail.
Why don't you take that up with whoever said it, rather than putting words in "our" mouths. Also, thanks for the opinion.
The suits in Washington are doing the best thing for the people - in the long run.
Once again thanks for your baseless claim.
Less whining and more intelligent thinking is needed here.
If having an unpopular (although I believe about 40% of the public shares "our" opinion of the bailout) is considered whining and unintelligent,
well, I'm a crybaby idiot.
No, thank you for reaffirming my belief that the bailout is criminally irresponsible and an absolutely wrong choice. Also, your entire tone comes
across as condescending and arrogant, but I'm sure that's not an accurate reflection of your intentions, because you're just trying to tell us that
"the suits" are looking out for us.
