    The Dow's up again, consumer confidence is up, Asian and Euro markets surviving. We don't need this POS. Let a handful of banks fail, or a few handfuls, and bargain hunters will step in and buy them up, and we'll be back to normal in less than a year.

    I've already emailed all four representatives from Arkansas (one of which I know personally), and both of our Senators (one of which I also know personally). All four reps voted for it yesterday, so they will probably do so again. It's pretty disappointing.

    great, wonderful.... :(

    we now are giving banks more leeway to screw the tax payer when the big guns intentionally dick us again.... our tax dollars, will have to cover even more of their mistakes....and to them, this just gives them more money to play with without worry is my best guess...

    This is ridiculous and has asolutely NOTHING to do with the mess we are in imo and should not be part of this bill...the fdic insurance going up per individual account....is something that could be changed later if it is even needed at all...If i were so wealthy, that i needed $250 per account i had to be insured by the fdic, i wouldn't want all my money in one account anyway...i would want to spread it out...regardless, this is still ridiculous to be part of this bill, as i mentioned!

    These assholes in Congress are fucking stupid. Bill O'Reilly was screaming at them the other night to pas this shit- proving that he doesn't know shit from shinola either. I'm so sick of these assholes.

    I refinanced twice in the last three years and twice rejected any teaser/ sub prime/ special-magic-potion-deal that were offered. I pay the fuckers on time. I pay some smart dude $3K/ year to advice me on my finances, add as a result I have all kinds of insurance, high deducts on my stuff, a balanced portfolio and enough liquidity to easily get over potential short term problems. I live well within my means.

    Now I'm the one who's being forced to pay for those who did the exact opposite.

    Exactly, those of us who live within our means AND take responsibility for our own finances are being forced to bail out the ones who were too irresponsible, lazy, and ignorant to do the same. It's a crying fucking shame, considering all the handouts we already pay for. Every time I stand in line to pay for my groceries and I see the bitch in front of me in her brand name clothes and iPhone paying with her food stamp card, I want to punch her in the throat.

    Oh, you really got her there!

    Seriously, the fact that anyone can still support either of these two candidates after they urged the passing of this bill is beyond me.
