Republicans...What happened to "fiscal responsibility?

The gov't bails out yet another HUGE corporation... "In the most far-reaching intervention into the private sector ever for the Federal Reserve, the government stepped in Tuesday to rescue American International Group Inc. with an $85 billion injection of taxpayer money. Under the deal, the government will get a 79.9 percent stake in one of the world's largest insurers and the right to remove senior management" Though you guys don't believe in BIG GOVERNMENT?? Where's the FISCAL RESPONSIBILITY you people are always going on about? How does it feel to live in a SOCIALIST country??? ROFL Didn't take you guys long to blame the Democrats, did it? Personal Responsibility...blame the other guy as fast as you can! CHARITY G--Papa Bear would like to inform you that the Republicans controlled the house in 1997 please read below Sunshine, thanks for posting that...I'm sure the cons are all too busy pointing their fingers at the dems, but this is very interesting!
