Let's pay for the $700 billion economic bail-out package. With a U.S. population of 300 million, that's $2333 apiece. So much for our economic stimulus checks of $600 or $300.
Why is it that when people are having trouble, we get hundreds of dollars, but when corporations are having trouble, they take thousands from us and give it to the corporations?
Another question, what's going to happen to all of those bad loans that the Treasury Dept will own? Will they foreclose? Will they forgive? That means that irresponsible people who bought more house than they could afford get rewarded, while those of us who have been trying to build up savings for a down payment get passed over. Ugh.
