This is such BULL. Why does the US continue to try and bail everyone out that makes bad decisions?? Whether it be here or abroad?? Since the senate and congress wants to bail everyone out and do away with debt, why not just give everyone in the US that has made bad decisions and ran credit cards up a free pass too? Put everyone on WELFARE!!!
