    Washington DC doesn't even try to hide anything anymore. When the press and social media is behind the &^^$#$, what do they care what the other half of the country thinks.

    The senate fails to come to an agreement on Corona aid package again. I heard the Dems were asking for no corporate buybacks for 10 years! I'm in favor of no bonuses and buybacks for a while, but 10 years??? Sabotage?

    Let these companies borrow money via conventional means to get them through if they want no strings attached. Money is cheap right now.

    10 years is a long time. How about until they pay it back, just like we have to adhere to rules on our mortgages until we pay it all back. It's a valid request, to not buy stock back with taxpayer money.

    I wonder how that conversation would go...

    Airline CEO: "hello Mr. Big Bank, I would like to borrow money, in the middle of the largest economic collapse the world has ever seen."

    Mr. Bank: "can we see your balance sheets and P&L over the last 6 months?"

    Airline CEO: "As you can see, things were rolling along OK, but these last couple months have been tough."

    Mr. Bank: "WAAAAHAHAHAHA.... HAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!! YOU want money for what again? We have standards and laws that must be followed, and you come in here with this??? And you want 60 Billion? With a "B"??? Come back when you want funding for that comedy tour, but until then get the eff outta here. What do I look like, some kind of schmuck?"


    Yeah... don't think that ends particularly well.

    The congress wants to pay off college loans as part of the bailout.

    How about they join the USMC and GI bill their way through?
    That would change their outlook on life.
    Now i know why my old man was always p!ssed off about politics.

    It's a way of holding hostage money in a crisis. They give in and I will be very disappointed. They took out those loans on their own free will, now with zero interest. Sorry kids, nobody is forgiving my mortgage, and neither will yours be forgiven.

    Yeah... don't think that ends particularly well.

    They got the assets and ownership in the company as collateral and they can negotiate terms.

    BTW, that 60 billion is the airline industry as a whole and again in case you didn't understand my previous post, conventional financing is if you don't like the terms and conditions that come with the bailout.

    So yeah, your reply was a waste of your time.

    True Steve. Some companies deserve to go down though. You might think differently if they had to raise your taxes for every dollar they spend bailing out everyone instead of just printing it. Which is why everyone and their brother wants a bailout from the federal government, they can just print their way out of this mess.

    Sending people a check for a few grand will help in the short term, what about the long term though, we gonna do it again in a few months ? We need a robust economy, and for that we need commerce to happen. Without that, we're doomed. CV would be the least of your worries.
