Hank Paulson’s bailout plan is a quackery short term fix to a long term problem.
The government caused the mortgage crisis first by creating, and second, by expanding Fannie mae and Freddie mac.
Both of these institutions should be killed.
Both candidates cannot ask to be President unless each comes up with a long term plan to fix our destroyed, shrinking and incoherent economy.
We have too much borrowing for immediate, short term consumption, and not enough saving for investment.
We need a national plan, not a short term crisis by crisis government and not quite leaders.
