Hi gang,

I heard a very interesting call this morning on C-Span's Washington Journal. The called said that instead of publicly financing the $700 billion bailout, why doesn't the Treasury issue bailout bonds. I kinda like the idea of this and wanted to float the idea with the community.

Sounds too much like a bail bond to me -
Which is what these jokers really are afraid they'll need money for.
