    We gained more money than we lost in the long run. That is a success. Take off your faux news goggles and join us in reality.

    I doubt Faux will even report this story though. Or they'll try to give Bush Credit for the bailout

    Thats why we are here. Some of us anyway. I change my mind based on things I learn in discussions here. If you don't let partisanship defeat your ability to learn, this (DP) is a great source of knowledge.

    Is there anyone here who has never changed positions based on a revelation from another poster? If so, why are you even here?

    (not you J-mac, I'm speaking generically)

    We've gained a lot more in tax revenue from the jobs we've saved than any money we lost from the bail out..

    Only in the Imagination of a con would that be called a failure.
    Who told you such nonsense about the millions of jobs?

    And create (or save) your own job. Don't forget that important part of your bailout.

    OMG, that was one of my favorite political quotes of all time....as if they knew how to calculate jobs "saved".

    They saved 1.5 million jobs with the auto bailouts. The employees were so relieved that they celebrate the bailout every day with weed and 40s during their lunch breaks.
