Don't you find it odd that the Republicans were so gunho about bailing out the banks but when it comes to the auto industry asking for a tiny fraction, they throw a fit? I don't suppose this has anything to do with Wall Street being in Bush's pocketbook and Detroit not....
We need a congressional investigation into this matter asap. I mean seriously this had got to be the biggest scam of the century. Where is all this money going???
Well they shoved the financial bailout down our throats and (as I think mentioned on Credit Card Forum previously) CA Rep Brad Sherman was telling the media how the Republicans were telling them there would be "marshall law in a week" if he and the others didn't approve the bailout immediately.
Congress should give Detroit their money which is peanuts in comparison to these other bailouts. Instead congress should be analysing the banks use of their money, line by line, and make sure the rest of it gets used how it was meant to be.
