Default Throw ALL the bums out!!! Enough is Enough

So now the bailout is coming back up for a vote. It was originally 3 pages long...

Until congress got a hold of it. Now it is 450 pages long.. and includes love-gifts and pet ideological pushes from both sides.

Funding for rural schools IN A BAILOUT???

Tax breaks.. IN A BAIL OUT

Law changes to make mental health coverage mandatory just like physical health by insurance companies... IN A BAIL OUT!!!!!

If you remember Preacher there was a lot of us that started that talk about 10 or so years ago. It may be time to bring it back.

I just saw on Lou Dobbs that they added 150B more the the bill to fund these ear marks..WTF!! That makes the total 850B. Where is McCain standing against this. He's supposed to be against ear marks..Who can we trust!

Neither one of them...

Throw the bums out!!!


Seriously. It is utterly ridiculous.

When Rush Limbaugh and Michael Moore are on the same side of a debate... neither want this bill to pass... You know American politics are screwed up royally.

What kills me is that there has been little or no mention of where this money is coming from....let's add it to the trillion dollars we already owe China!

Great leadership? What the heck?

I'm sure we could put a bunch of middle school kids in congress and get better results. Of course their version of a bail out may include Wii's for everyone!

Default Re: Throw ALL the bums out!!! Enough is Enough

What interests me the most is that last Monday we lost 1 TRILLION dollars in a stock market drop because the bailout failed (and, yes we gained half that back the next day, but it illustrates how important the markets are to the stability of ours, and the rest of the worlds economies). And there is language that pays the taxpayers back should this money be recovered. And this will stabilize the markets/banks. And it did increased FDIC protection from 100k to 250k. My mom has a friend who owns a car dealership, and the guy had two seperate people with 700 credit ratings fail to get approved yesterday. Dude said these are AUTOMATIC credit approvals before the bank/market crashes. Credit freezes cannot be helpful to this flailing economy. Friedman article on this is coming in a seperate thead...

You're honestly surprised about this, Preacher? I knew that this bailout would not have a chance of passage unless greedy politicians added billions of dollars of pork to it. This is even more of a reason to oppose the bailout. This kind of crap needs to stop in Washington - they treat the people's tax money like Chris Henry treats the law.
