Too bad they're already neck deep in it. And by "it" I'm going back to 1994 when the government thought it would be a good idea to force banks to relax guidelines and extend credit to less worthy applicants... all the way through the deregulation of the last 8 years, the handling of Fannie, Freddie, AIG, and all the investment banks... They're so deeply intertwined in this, they can't get out. It's too late to say, "we're not getting involved in the ecconomy!" This is the economy our government created.
