    Is there anything in the bill that corrects the source of the problem or is this just a band aid that we will have to keep applying every few years?

    the Bankers got their wish, they got away with murder...and a money grab...

    No solutions, no remedies. Not intuitive or intelligent thought as for the ramifications that will be wrought. Just throw money at it. The good ol govt way.

    Better question: How the hell do they get to be that long in the first place? Who types up 100s of pages of bill that quickly?

    Democrats can use the excuse "Bush lied to us" on the $700 billion bailout. Remember the line, "We didn't like the bill." Yet they voted for it. Remember the last eight years, they still listen to Bush's demands. No balls in Washington. The last eight years on failed economic policies and Congress decided to vote for another one.
