Assuming the population of the United States of 300 million, it’s $2,330 dollars for every man, woman and child.
This administration’s failed domestic, international and now financial policies are finally crashing down on them. They would probably have liked it if the whole house of cards had held up for another 3 or 4 months, so it would be somebody else’s problem, but it didn’t.
When the Iraq war mess came crashing down Bush needed to ask us for “the Surge.”
Now he is asking each of us to pay $2,330 (our children, that is, because it’s all going to debt) to bail out failed businesses on Wall Street.
And he does it with a straight face.
