    "Jerry Howard, CEO of the National Association of Home Builders, said the Wall Street bailout is crucial, even though he doesn't believe it will solve the credit crunch that was hitting his members before the crisis started.

    For this reason, Howard said as soon as Congress returns to work from its upcoming recess, his trade group will be asking for another package of between $40 billion and $90 billion directed towards the housing market."

    What does he mean they will asking for another package of between $40 billion and $90 billion? Since when has the taxpayer become the "bank" of these people?

    I was thinking of submitting a proposal for "The Real Jock Athletic Fund"...I mean, athletics and the fitness of real jocks is crucial to the survival of this country...is it not? I think $100 million is appropriate - pennies compared to $700 Billion icon_lol.gif
