Comment: Good question!

(See in situ)

Good question!

1. It is not the proper function of government.
2. If it WAS the proper role of government we should only do it if we can responsibly afford it. We can't.
3. We can't even irresponsibly afford it! (If we had $85 bucks in the bank and had to fund $75 bucks worth of stuff for the upsoming year and the bailout would cost $10 bucks... we should not responsibly do a bailout. Our situationis that we have $0 in the bank, $11,235 bucks promised to folks for other purchases we have made over the years, expected expenses this year of $759 bucks and the bailout would cost $50 bucks! Sorry, no can do!
