We give them a bailout of our money and now they don't hold up to thier commitments??

Maybe we did the wrong thing with this bailout?? What do you think??

  • It didn't take Bank Of American long to revert to their greedy ways did it? How long until the rest of them join BOA.

  • I was asked... But when a Hedge Fund tycoon puts on a sad puppy dog face, it's so hard to say no to.
    Oops. My bad.

  • What are you talking about????? I have no clue but I am guessing because the big wigs did not do as they promised. Well, that is just what the people said would happen. I never thought there should be bailouts for anybody. These companies all knew they were in trouble. If the government had never had the bailouts, no one would be stalking Washington looking for money. We have the Mort. giants, the auto industry, the mass transit, the mayors. But, not the people. Yet it is our money. Nope, this was a terrible idea and one we will suffer for.

  • Question: Who called their congressman and made their voice heard? Until then, can you really say "we".

    I called, I emailed, hell I even faxed. While it may not always work in my favor(ie I am AGAINST the bailout), at least I know I tired to do something. People complain about change and sit back and wait for it to happen, THEN complain because it didn't go their way. What are you doing to get your opinion on key issues heard?
