    Yes lets elect the guy that wants to tax business more when they are all losing money and to steal those that make money profit with "windfall" profit schemes. Great plan indeed. That sure will make business more solvent.

    Nah...let's elect the guy who says write a check for 700 billion dollars and privatize their profits but socialize their losses....

    this isn't a tax issue. don't get confused... something has to be done here... but it doesn't have to be by dint of giving the scum who got us into this a blank check with no accountablity.

    surely you don't have a problem with that.

    BTW, you do know taxes are necessary to pay the bill on stuff like this and Iraq, right?

    just more lies RGS... taxing big business and people who make more than 250K a year isn't a bad idea.

    Also taxing windfall profits isn't a bad idea either.

    Ya ruining our economy is JUST such a winner idea, lets all vote for the guy that plans to drive even more business out of Country, costing us more jobs, more tax base and more problems. Great defense Jillian.

    Lets have Obama admit right now he is against ANY bail out of the current crisis, can you get him to actually say that ON AIR? It should win him MILLIONS of votes and shore up his ratings big time.

    Once again you partisan hack Bush has almost nothing to do with it and never has. Congress is to blame and remind me who runs congress and who in 2003 REFUSED to change regulations when Bush ask them to? Which party was it that blocked those changes then? And which party was it that spent the last 40 years making it easier and easier for people unable to repay loans to not only get them but make institutions required to GIVE them?

    You are as dumb as a box of rocks.

    ummm are you paying attention? our economy is ALREADY in ruins.

    he's not against the bailout...he's against writing a blank check, he's against the american tax payer footing the bill for the fuck ups of those on wall street, he's against just handing over the keys to the kingdom with no oversight and no accountability. Seems reasonable to me.

    Sure thing, the dems want to protect te people that owe the money AND let them keep the property. They want to ensure bad loans continue to the poor and marginal so they can rake in votes by saying they covered their asses.

    They want to drag out any plan till after the election no matter the cost in world economy or to this Country so they wont be held accountable for their crap.

    It aint gonna sell well though when it starts getting worse while they drag their feet for political gain.

    what will happen to all the property that has these bad mortgages on them? should the government take them and kick out the people who live in them? what would they do with them? Why not allow the people the opportunity to right their situation? pay their mortgages to whatever degree they can until they can fix the problem. It sure beats the banks sitting on empty houses with NO revenue coming in, wouldn't you say?

    and why do the banks get assistance when they helped create this mess but the homeowners don't? That mentality shows that you don't give a fuck about the PEOPLE!

    and who is dragging their feet? the Dems aren't prepared to just hand over control to an administration that ALREADY proved they can't be trusted! why would ANYONE think that was a good idea? The Bush administration has already proved themselves inept...writing a blank check won't solve that issue. There needs to be oversight and accountability.
