The TARP plan was always a turd

I guess the good news for us hard working middle class U.S. taxpayers who pay our bills and debts is that Henry Paulson and the Treasury Department are no longer going to be buying the sub prime crap loans under the Toxic Asset Reduction Program. Which in my book should have been called TURD loans because that is what they are. The idea of using our good tax dollars to buy crap loans from the banks who gave them out does not sit well with this and many other taxpayers. I think Hockeymike 374 speaks for many of us taxpayers:

"How can people be so stupid. Does anyone in congress understand that if you reward irresponsible behavior you will get more of it? I feel like an idiot for paying my bills and living within my means. I would say write your representatives but the last time we did that we were punished by making a 700B dollar bill an 850B dollar bill. This is beyond outrageous. The worst part is this will do nothing to solve the problem. NO more bailouts for corporations or the greedy and irresponsible people who bought homes they could never afford."

Sounds like good advice.

Once again Congress has failed to use its congressional oversight to protect the American people.
