I said based on the size of the bailout, we could have given every man woman and child in America between $5000 and $10000. Free. And we could have voided any payroll taxes for 6 months. Now if you were a gay man and his partner, you would have recieved between $10000 and $20000 for your household. Would you have cared, given that you were now richer by that amount and getting richer due to reduced income taxes, if AIG or Citibank or GM or Bank of America or Credit Suisse or any hedge fund went belly up? I think not. Instead we are faced with an administration (who I think is very honest) mired in deception because government should not be in he business of running failed companies. Obama and his staff look like poster boys for folks who have fallen off turnip trucks.
