Remembering the bailout was well underway under Bush II, I don't see this as a Republican or Democrat issue. It's simply a sign that the scale of the world economy may be too big.
$787 000 000 000. They should write it out with all the zeroes every time so it makes a little more sense.
787 billion dollars < $787 000 000 000
That's about $2600 for every man, woman, and child in America. And either way you write it, it means corporations AND government are too big.
