    2 Candidates Urge Greater Oversight in Bailout Plan

    So,they both agree that giving away $700 billion of borrowed money without any oversight is a bad idea, and the Democrats in Congress at least are on board with that.

    Neither wants to give up expensive proposals, however, just because of a little 700 billion setback.

    I wonder just how much the deficit will actually be this time around? The budget gurus were predicting nearly $500 billion, add to that another $700 billion, and we have a potential deficit that could top a trillion dollars.:eek:

    But, it is good news that neither candidate wants to just give the money away, or give one person carte blanch to spend it as he sees fit.
