    Over 350 billion dollars of the bail out has been given to various banking companies who are not using it to make loans but are hoarding it or using it to buy up other banks. They just appointed and Inspector General now that half of the money is gone.

    The Republican Congress blocked an auto loan in the lame dick session.

    Why do we give the money to the money lenders who totally screwed up their business but not give it (with strings attached: i.e. paid back and fire current CEOs, and more) to the Auto industry that will layoff 3 million people if it goes belly up.

    Because the banks are the Bush friends as in Paulson former CEO of Goldman Sacks of Money.

    This is just like Iraq and all the money that just went away there. 9 Billion on pallets. Someone who knows someone has that money in their account right now, while the average American may be laid off, losing his/her home and healthcare.

    Long life the Corporations for they are the Saviors and Heart of the Country : NOT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!1

    We should not be bailing out anybody, it's unconstitutional and makes our economy even worse in the long run.

    An inconvenient truth, to be sure!

    Why anyone thought giving ANY amount of money to the bunch that got the situation to where it is in the first place is beyond me...never mind doing so without any kind of oversight. Now we are supposed to give a bailout to every entity that comes along with a sob story under the same conditions...no oversight, no plan for improvement, and no guarantees that it wont happen again. It's all bullshit. The CONGRESS controls the purse strings and it is the CONGRESS that needs to manage the situation. They (as a collective representative body of the citizens of this country) MUST do what is right for this country.

    The disease effecting the body politic is not Republicans or Democratics, it's the insiders who dominate both parties.

    Who are those insiders?

    They're the people some of you feel so sorry for because they have to pay taxes.

    They can still stop progress at this point. I am not saying the Dems aren't a bunch of wussies for letting them do this without publicizing it more, but the Repubs have been using the filly to hold up dem actions to make them look bad.

    Screw the country over party.

    The majority in Congress is held by the Dems ...

    Of course the Dems would NEVER use the Fillibuster to stop passage of a bill.

    They are ALL (Congress collectively) responsible!
