Suppose I go to a baseball game, with my teen-age son. I've just been to the bank, and the smallest bill I have is a $100.
I send my son up to get two hot dogs, some peanuts, and two diet sodas. I know that costs maybe $18.
He comes back with the stuff and sits down. I ask him for the change. He looks at me like I'm crazy. "That money is going to be spent on other things! That's leftover money!"
What would I do? I'd grab him by the belt, and shake the money out of his pockets! That's my money! I want my change back. I WANT MY CHANGE BACK!
That's what we should be telling President Obama about the TARP money. I WANT MY CHANGE BACK! Obama and his bunch of geniuses in Congress said they needed our money, that there would be a DISASTER unless we gave them a $1 Trillion bill. Maybe that was true, maybe it wasn't.
But we gave them the trillion dollar bill. AND THEY DIDN'T NEED IT ALL.
WE WANT OUR CHANGE BACK! It is outrageous that they are keeping the change, just so they can spend it on something else.
Tell the President: WE....WANT....OUR.....CHANGE...BACK! Apply the money back toward the deficit, don't treat it like a high school kid at a baseball game, on the equivalent of cotton candy and corn dogs.
