You're only guaranteed money if you have lobbyists and have contributed to so many political campaigns, much of the legislative and executive branch is beholden to you.

A filibuster requires at least a week long debate, I think. That would allow for the real economic experts who disagree with this bailout, a chance to speak

The late great Strom Thurman....they don't do it that way anymore now they just sit there and don't really dare say anything much less 28 hours of argument.

Leave the talking to the talking heads

Pelosi kinda filibustered this morning and look at all the nasty names she gets called for doing a great job.
