As engineer has said, it's not the "same" bill; they made some injections into the legislation to sweeten the deal for the taxpayers, but it's still the wrong way to help our economy. The only way to help our economy is to create jobs through Public Works Projects, not bail out one industry of many that makes up our economy, and reward those who created this problem in the first place; the government and the speculators who are the real culprits.
Our government have lost the trust of the electorate, and their voices are now being heard, but congress is determined to push this one-dimensional rescue plan that will only worsen our economy - and the worlds'.
They're gambling with this legislation, because they don't have enough information to make the right decisions, and are still complying with Paulson and Bernanke for this $700 billion dollar package.
If they had any sense of our economy, they would provide cash to the finance institutions immediately to provide cash to the small businesses that makes up our economy. Their eyes have been diverted from the primary engine of our economy, and are still talking about putting all their eggs into one basket that will surely be dropped.
