3. It does suck doesn't it?
I am buying a house I can afford. I didn't get an no-prinicple ARM with a 5 year balloon on a mansion I couldn't afford. I didn't make the loan to the guy that was buying a mansion he couldn't afford. I'm not running up massive credit card debt.

But I have to pay for the people who made these shitty decisions, while the bank president keeps his cushy job and stock options and the homeowner keeps his McMansion and gets his credit card debt forgiven. And I pay for it with an inflation-riddled dollar meaning everything I buy costs more and the national debt goes up $1 trillion.

Where's the 'personal responsibility' Republicans always claim to call for?
