37. I disagree... of course these nations own a big chunk of us now...
... and you want them to own more? For pennies on the dollar?

I prefer the bill as its written to allowing the global markets to fail. It's a rock and a hard place, to be certain. But I think we'll get a bill, hopefully in time to stop some of this rampant bleeding.
