If we're in a recession, how can the gov't afford to give relief to 400,000 morons who can't pay the mortgages

The mortgages THEY SIGNED?

If I had known the government would just bail me out, I might have purchases a half million dollar home a couple of years ago.

Update:

"purchased"(above)....sorry. I hate it when people post questions on here with errors.

Update 2:

Oh Ferno, you silly.....I didn't even mention the war, and this question isn't about the war---we can discuss that elsewhere.

You're going to make excuses for people signing mortgages they can't afford because you have a problem with personal responsibility. I have a problem paying for people who aren't personally responsible, and yes, they are MORONS!

    This is part of the reason we're in a recession. Piss-poor spending ideas by our leadership.

    The recession is just a scam to try and push people further away from the Republican party. The only reason all those people lost their homes is because they were living beyond their means. The economy is in a slump, but it is definitely not a recession.

    i don't think of any human beings can. we've already sent over 3 million money over to Myanmar, and greater will maximum in all probability be on the way. The U.S. is already in a catastrophic state as this is. we don't prefer help out each little u . s . or city in different factors different than the U.S. the whole worldwide desires to guard themselves. The U.S. should not be assisting to each little prefer and unfavorable experience that occurs. we produce different issues to stress approximately. And the masses of thousands of greenbacks being sent to Myanmar will merely further our recession.

    Ineffective, careless and reckless government is to blame for the lack of oversight and accountability. This is just another case of blaming the victim. You say 400,000 morons...but the fraudulent perpetrators are quite clever in your book. Your assessment is so typical of morons. Seventy percent of Americans believe this war was a mistake...but it took only a handful of @ssholes at the top to say it was just. Iraq is draining our treasury at a bigger rate than 400,000 morons ever could.

    This is a prime example of what is wrong with our federal government. Politicians are doing whatever they think will get them the most votes in the next election.

    These bailouts are totally irresponsible.
