Well. People are upset about this plan.

But I am concerned about my own household finances . . . and I wonder if my DH will receive his salary direct deposit this month. Has anyone figured out if the whole system is now gonna freeze up?

As for the market . . . it will continue to tank unless they bring this up for another vote and pass it. It is like taking bad tasting medicine. Just gotta do it.

if there is somewhere around 300 million people in the US why not just send us a million each and let us bail ourselves out.

I hate government!
