The government doesn't have any money. It is going to have to borrow money to pay for the bailout. In effect, the government is competing against all those businesses for whatever "credit" is available. So how is continued government borrowing and spending going to help the economy?
Investors got lazy and didn't do their homework with their investments. Now they're whining about their losses. Let the market bury the losers--that is what a "free market" is for. Isn't it? New competent, savvy investors will arise from the cinders. Time to clean house and get rid of the dead wood.
This bail out is designed to look after the alleged "risk takers". I have not been living beyond my means. I did not buy 12 houses to flip, and I certainly did not buy any mortgage-backed securities. So why should I help bail out the dummies. During the 30's a lot of people lost money, but a lot of people made money also. Time to get rid of the old guard.
We maybe cutting our noses, but the government and these "investor" thugs are going to cut our throats.
