    The problem we seem to keep having in Washington is the majority doesn't care what happens to the economy or to our national security as long as they keep their special interests happy. You would think that in an emergency the Dems would try to work with the Administration. Fat chance.

    Chuck Schumer said today that he is going to change the bailout bill the Fed is presenting to Congress by adding bailouts for mortgage holders and putting limits in the bill on executive compensation.

    House Speaker Nancy Pelosi, D-Calif., said in San Francisco "We cannot deal with this unless this bailout helps families stay in their homes."

    The bill is already tabbed at around $700 billion and the Democrats plan on adding billions more to it turning it into a "Christmas Tree bill.'


    Quote:
    "The American people are furious that we're in this situation, and so am I," the House's top Republican, Ohio Rep. John A. Boehner, said in a statement. "We need to do everything possible to protect the taxpayers from the consequences of a broken Washington."

    Signaling what could erupt into a brutal fight with Democrats over add-on spending, Boehner said "efforts to exploit this crisis for political leverage or partisan quid pro quo will only delay the economic stability that families, seniors, and small businesses deserve."

    Bush said he worried the financial troubles "could ripple throughout" the economy and affect average citizens. "The risk of doing nothing far outweighs the risk of the package. ... Over time, we're going to get a lot of the money back."

    My Way News - Bush team, Congress negotiate $700B bailout


    Now democrat house leader, Nancy Pelosi & along with Barack Obama--want us to guarantee, at our tax dollar expense", the ignorage & irresponsiblity of people whom knowingly bought homes they could not afford in the first place. GREAT! Why don't they just send us the rest of their bills too?

    So democrats run Fannie Mae & Freddie Mac into the grounding while CFO's of these agencies walked away with hundreds of millions of dollars, two of which are on Obama's campaign committee--& of course, Obama used these two agencies for his own personal piggy bank.

    Why didn't Americans (employees & investors) who lost so much money in the stock market over fraud, specifically Enron, Worldcom & others get a government bailout? They are more deserving than these morons.

    Like my banker told me: If you don't pay--you don't stay

    I am assuming you're making a sarcastic joke? Would you expect to be able to stay in your home if you didn't make your monthly mortgage payment?

    no, i'm worried about the bank going under, despite the fact that i've never been late on a payment.

    i make all my payments on time. i'm just afraid of the bank itself going under.

    So we should bail out the companies that gave loan to people who couldn't afford it but not help the people who are loosing their homes. Also one of the reasons they are loosing their homes is because the companies raised the interest rates on the loans so high that made it impossible to make the payments. Also what about the people who are loosing money on their retirement funds because of the problems in the stock market.

    Ordinarily liberals just confiscate money and give it away to the under-productive.

    Now they have a debacle they engineered and will spin onto McCain even he warned against it...and they still get their vote-buying scheme for the deadbeat bloc.

    How is your 401k right now? And my point is, if we are going to bail out the companies who gave the loans out in the first place knowing people at some point would not be able to make their payment why shouldn't we also bail the people who recieved the loans. Both are at fault! Are national debt keeps getting higher and Bush is the one who keeps wanting to bail out everyone. And all while we are doing this we are sending a billion dollars to Georgia, we can't keep borrowing money from China!

    The point of this thread is: We already know we're going to be bailing out the banks--at a cost of 700 billion dollars. In essense, our government will own these foreclosed homes.

    Are we too bail out also, the ignorant/irresponsible homeowners? This is what the democrats are trying to add to the bill.
