Over two weeks ago, US President George W. Bush addressed Americans stating, in essence, that if an emergency bailout bill was not passed within days, the economy would falter.
Now despite Congress' rush to pass the Emergency Economic Stabilization Bill, Wall Street is anything but stable.
As the Washington Post reported today:
"The $700 billion package was approved by Congress but still needs to be implemented. Treasury Secretary Henry M. Paulson Jr. said yesterday that it will be weeks before the government starts buying troubled assets from financial institutions"So tell me, Do you feel that you were lied to about the urgency of the Wall Street bailout?
