Suddenly There IS $1 Trillion Available?

-- by Dave Johnson

For decades we can't have a health care plan -- too expensive. Alternative energy? Too expensive. College paid for by the government? Too expensive. And Social Security was "in crisis" because it MIGHT come up a bit short in 40 years -- we have to raise the retirement age!

But THIS MORNING the Bush Administration announces a plan to spend $1 TRILLION (should put that as another trillion) bailing out the big financial firms and Congress will vote on it NEXT WEEK!

Suddenly, as with the Iraq war, there is a fast trillion to be had, with NO chance for anyone to think it over.
