Math Lesson For Politicians
Obama has been bragging lately that the banks repaid TARP.
And now he's saying that the $30 billion repaid, will be put to good use. Of course, that money was borrowed from our grandchildren.
TARP was officially a $700 billion program. $700 billion does not equal $30 billion.
But time and time again, Rush Limbaugh, Sean Hannity and others have bragged that the banks paid back all of the money and that's why their employees that crapped away many hundreds of billions of dollars, deserve giant bonuses! The crappier you are at business, the more money you should get from the government!
And why not? In their view, $700 billion and $30 billion are the same number. and if you're that crappy with math, then shouldn't you be on section 8 disability?
