OK the bailout, as written on Monday, was 110 pages. John McCain admitted in an interview that he hadn’t had time to read it over the weekend when it was 3 pages. Surely he didn’t read the 110 pages on Monday. The Senate voted this evening on a revised version that included 451 pages. I’m wondering if anyone read it. I think I’m safe guessing McCain didn’t read it if he couldn’t read Paulson’s version when it was 3 pages, or was it two… can’t remember now while worrying about our future.
I’m guessing Obama didn’t read it either. Realistically, how could he fit in 451 pages of reading while campaigning. Yet all of them are crying that we need this now and fast.
I’m wondering if anyone knows what they are voting for? Now the bail out package is being called a “Rescue Package”. I guess they feel that sounds better to us in accepting it. The bottom line is, we’re not getting rescued, nobody has a clue what they are voting for, the folks that wrote it were part of the problem that created this mess, and we’re getting screwed again.
