I truly hope the bail-out package works. Rooting for its failure seems to be like the old saying, "Cutting off your nose to spite your face." America (and the world) is hurting right now, and hoping for the bail-out's failure so that one party can gain later just seems sick. That party had a chance to do a lot over the last 8 years, and squandered it. So, lick your wounds and come back stronger and with an attitude that will help America, and not just the party.
Sure, there are things in the bail-out that I don't particularly like. I have a lot of trouble with this idea of helping people stay in houses that they couldn't afford to begin with. So they got loans for much more house than they could afford -- loans that allowed them to pay only the interest. Now the housing market has dropped -- and they are upside down in their house. A house that they NEVER should have bought to begin with!
