While we were all occupied with who was receiving money in the bailouts, we weren't paying attention to the why.
Thus, when the bailouts came, so too did more hands asking for their own pie, not just a piece of what was there. It also failed to address the actual problem of poor government regulation, fiscal policies in both the gov. and private sectors, and not to mention company responsibility.
Now, some people have their suggestions as to what the problem is, from wars to atheists, but that for the most part is either excuses or scapegoating.
The issue is large, complicated, and rests on all of our shoulders. Thus, as one we must push back against the avalanche set off by those initial bailouts.
Vote these assholes out of office so we can have some peace of mind that things like THIS will stop happening.
To use terminology that the Republican's are fond of: It is a slippery slope we are standing on.
It does not help fill a hole in your yard if you fill it with dirt from a hole you dig right next to it.
