Are you relieved that Congress has reached an agreement on the bailout?
Asked at Massachusetts Street on October 4, 2008
“Not at all. I was hoping they would fight that thing until the end and shut it down completely. I don’t feel that taxpayers should be bailing out the intensely greedy people who got us there in the first place.”
“I’m not really that relieved. I think there’s a lot more financial trouble on the way.”
“I think it’s money wasted, money that was made on the backs of taxpayers going to the fat cats in finance. They should have known better, but they screwed up, and we have to pay for it.”
“Not at all unless they got rid of the pork barrel attached to it. That was ridiculous.”
