That is what it probably will be called in the future, The Bailout. Or the final Congressional act that caused the US Repbulic to turn into a tyranny. There is still time to stop this madness.
A blank check in the sum of $700billion to the Secretary of the Treasury is not the way to solve the current financial market meltdown. Paulson needs some oversight from Congress and firm guidelines least the $700billion just vanish into propping up Wall Street for a few more years.
A quick fix is not a cure-all. Neither is what the Democrats are doing is a cure-all. Congress, under Rep. Barney Frank[D-MA] tutelage, is sitting on the bill to give it due deliberation. This is the same crew that ram-roded in 24 hours a phony energy bill last week. What this due deliberation is actually doing is giving Democrats, Republicans, and their buddies time to hang personal earmarks on this Christmas tree. These swine are betting that no matter how bloated this bill becomes, President Bush will still sign it.
So for all the wrong reasons, this Congress may save the Republic as President Bush vetoes this bailout. Still lets vote the bums out this November, make them work for once in their lives.
