What did they think was going to happen when they pushed that sucker through before anybody could read it or look into any aspect of it??
I am completely perplexed at the response of the Congress. I have said it before, but a person does not have to have an MBA to see that this strategy of blindly throwing money at failing companies is the most moronic, irresponsible thing they could possibly have done.
When my children ask permission to do something, I ask questions and require a 48 hour window between the request and the event to allow time to look into what it is they want to do. I may just be an ignoramous in the eyes of Congress, but my house and cars will be paid in full within 3 years and all my credit cards are already paid in full and have been for quite a while. My husband and I will be completely debt free before I am 45 years old. My children are not doing drugs and spend their time with smart kids with nice parents. I am not in denial or blind to my children's doings - I am diligent in verifying and checking up on things. In my opinion Congress could take a lesson from every good mother in the US.
Congress has pushed through bill after bill amounting to roughly $2,063,800,000,000 in the first 50 DAYS (not months or years - DAYS) of this administration without taking any time to research a damn thing because Nancy Pelosi was in a hurry to go to Rome.
Was this the kind of change that people were hoping for??
