What about us?

What about the people who have been frugal, or at least haven’t maxed out their credit cards, bought houses with other people’s money and now are asking to get bailed out?

If they’d lost their money in a Reno casino or bought stock from E trade and lost it all, they wouldn’t dare to ask us to bail them out. So how come when they buy a house they can’t afford, don’t read the loan agreement and then find out they can’t flip the house, I am expected to bail these idiots out? Pay your money, take your chances.

I am not interested in bailing these speculative idiots and their greedy lenders out! I don’t remember their offering to split their winnings with the taxpayer. Do you?
