US edges closer to bail-out deal


news.bbc.co.uk

During a rare Saturday session of the upper house, Mr Reid, the Senate majority leader, said congressional staff had worked on the legislation for the bail-out plan until the early hours of the morning.

President George W Bush used his weekly radio address to try and reassure those Americans concerned about the burden on taxpayers of the deal, saying the package would end up costing less than the headline figure of $700bn.

There is obviously many threads about the bail out already but this today was significant in my opinion. Why? Well, because Bush's words. Oh so now it is less that 700 billion dollars. So is that 699 billion or 698 billion or......etc. You get my point. Its similar to saying, "This can of soup in $2.99 and not $3.00." Just ticks me off with there play on words, as if we are just feeble minded idiots.
