    Republicans Suffering For 2008 Bank Bailout Vote - CBS News


    Though the bailout is an issue in Democratic races, it has become more damaging for Republicans, for whom government spending is more controversial. In March, the issue contributed to veteran Sen. Kay Bailey Hutchison's resounding defeat in the Republican gubernatorial primary in Texas, where Gov. Rick Perry dubbed her "Kay 'Bailout' Hutchison."

    Opinion polls show a sharp decline in public support for the government's role in stabilizing financial institutions. A survey conducted by the Pew Center for the People and the Press in February showed that only 40 percent of Americans now support the effort, and only 26 percent of Republicans.

    You are merely a hate broker.

    You spew hate where there is no need for it.


    The treasury dept. says we will make money on the deal, we could have made a shit load if it had been done right

    Good. GOP candidates that vote for this crap need to continue to be voted out of office. We expect the Democrats to vote for big-government entitlement programs, but not the GOP. These "GOP" politicians are more than welcome to join the Democrat Party.

    Why because it saved the economy and we are going to make money off it?

    Here's something you might understand (there is only one three syllable word):

    I am rubber
    You are glue
    Everything you say
    Bounces off me
    And sticks to you

    Do you understand that it is just Cronyism - and the damaging aspects of the Financial Crisis are continuing to this day? $400B to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac? 15M+ Unemployed? High levels of foreclosures?

    Whatever itsy bitsy amount of money the U.S. "profits" by TARP funding is vastly overshadowed by the widespread damage.
