That is a bailout costing hundreds of billions of dollars. I seem to recall that the United States has not had a spending surplus for many, many years. Our country spends much more than it takes in creating an annual budget deficit. That means we don't have any extra money that isn't already earmarked.
So where are we getting the money we are using for this economic bailout ?
We will have to borrow it.
Yes we borrow the money to save the people who lend us money.
Is this a weird shell game or what ?
