U.S. Senate to vote on Wall Street bailout tonight
Posted by kayinmaine on October 1, 2008
Don’t you love how some of the Senators are saying that it’s the fault of the House of Representatives for calling this a bailout for Wall Street instead of what it really is? Yeah yeah, there’s a difference people. Apparently, a ‘rescue’ is different than a ‘bailout’ and I’ll show you how below. Of course, when one puts lipstick on a pig, it’s still a pig but slightly prettier. Agree?
SIDEBAR NOTE: What do you think the Senate will do? Will your Senator vote in favor of the bill or vote against? Do you think the ‘rescue’ bill will be killed again or do you think the jackboot lickers like Sen. Susan Collins R-Maine will jump on this horse and ride it like a woman?
Just in case you’re not sure of which ‘boat’ you like or dislike at the moment, let me show the difference, okay? The House of Representatives put forth a BAILING OUT THE BOAT. Here’s what that looks like…
Can someone give this man a bucket?
And then so your mind will be completely clear, here’s what the Senate put forth, a ‘RESCUE BOAT’:
Not much difference except one boat is bigger and nicer than the other one and the other difference would be the CEO of Lehman Brothers (or maybe AIG, not sure) is in one of the boats stuffing his face with our money, see? This should help in making your decision as to which one you like…if any.
