Just let the whole shitpile collapse. It is not your fault. And honestly, I doubt doing anything will matter, anyway.
The House Republicans came out, and their play is clear:
“We will not use taxpayer money to bail out Wall Street. We want to protect the taxpayers.”
In other words, they do not give a shit. Walk away.
Just walk away.
I should probably add one brief bit of appreciation for the House Republicans. They took Paulson’s ridiculous proposal, a three page “plan” that we give an unelected guy 700 billion dollars and then tell us to go to hell while he does whatever he wants, and came up with something worse for the taxpayers (the insurance nonsense and capital gains garabage) while branding it as protecting the taxpayers. You have to appreciate that, at some level.
