A Simple Question for Congress
In capitalist countries, when I spend money to buy part of a bank, what I get in return is shares in the bank.
Congress wants to spend $700 Billion of taxpayer money to buy some banks.
They say there's going to be a profit involved, which is why it's OK to use my money.
By my calculations, $700 Billion dollars divided by 350 Million people is $2,000 for each US citizen - including me.
So what I want to know is: how many shares of these banks am I buying for my $2,000?
And when is Congress going to send me my stock certificates?
