The population of the United States (last census) was 305,224,950. If we divide the proposed $700 billion bailout of our financial industry by our population, each individual (including children) would be responsible for more than $2,000. Interesting. Consider the massive amount of humanitarian efforts that could be achieved.

The question now should be, "Is the money going to actually accomplish anything other than place a Band-Aid on a corrupt system?"
