    That would depend! Are you the down trodden? Have you been kept down for generations? Or do you have a work ethic and are you responsible and feel a need to be? In the case of latter don't look for a bailout. Only those that have spent far more than they earn and have now work ethic will be bailed out.

    Sounds like a hypothetical question to me.

    ks5shooter- The answer to your question is really in your question. You said "My job cuts my hours...". That means you are working. Our Government is set up to take from the working and give to the non-working. If your work decreases, the Government will take a little less from you and that is how you will be helped.

    Old Cowboy- Good analogy. I can even think of some other words to replace "bailee's and bailor's ".

    I did retire with a great pension this is hypothetical.If a citizen of this country mismanages his affairs or makes bad decisions of his investments are we going to be able to seek a bailout from our government?What Im pissed about is this didnt just happen to these companies in the last 6 months they have known for years and WE will pay for their incompetence.
