This topic should only be debated by the biggest, and the ballest.

I don't think anyone has the perfect solution, but this bailout plan was necessary.

1. We can't let our financial systems just fall apart at the seams.
2. We have to protect our assets (which many of us have in financial institutions that the plan will help).

Giving people money directly, wouldn't hurt, but that wouldn't bail our country out of this financial mess. Many of us are to blame and now we all have to pay.

The way I see it a few GEOs got a little greedy and got bit in the butt and now feels like its unfair, if I was a small business owner they'd just let me go under, yes we need corp. America but really at this price?
