    The Economic Stimulus Act of 2008 pushed the bailout into the 3rd/4th quarter instead of the 2nd/3rd quarter. Henry needed extra time to draft the 3 pages!

    They probably were trying to save off the recession until after the election. Obviously it was like trying to take down a grizzly with a bb gun.
  4. While adding $10 billion to our annual interest payments for all eternity...

    Here is an idea... Cut spending!
  5. They wanted to push the bailout closer to the election. This would keep dissent down and force a quick "panic" vote
  6. i never got one
  7. Yet another brilliant idea by the federal gubbment!!!

    Taking a stimulus check, and turning it into a wealth redistribution program!!!

    I have an idea, lets let them run National Healthcare!!!

    I'm sure they won't fuck that up?
