The bail-out become law today. It was a narrow palliative in a very broad, world-wide illness. It was sold as a program to protect average citizens or “main street” as they phrased it.
Earlier in the week the Senate passed the legislation with 74 affirmative votes. It was nauseating to watch those old birds brag on themselves and tell how patriotic they are, and all they are doing for “main street”. They don’t know anything about “main street” or even where it is located. If they wanted to go to “main street” they would have to Mapquest it. The whole country knows the Senate’s urgency was for the big boys.
