if one of these candidates stood up and said no to the bill i feel they'd probably win this election. it's like they woke up this week and found out the economy is in trouble and we have to panic and sprint to get something passed. how about an original idea that using money to fix problems? I'd love to see the total expenditures this past year on how much cash washington has given out for bailouts, for aid, for stimulus packages. we have the credit swap defaults which are billions we have this bill which includes foreign subsidaries being able to transfer foreign illiquid assets to american banks to be bailed out. Obama, McCain and Bush should go on a vacation and don't come back to washington because they offer no change for the right direction I love how they say sacrafice while they made out like bandits.
