Congress approved half of the $700 billion bill to be used in 2008. The remaining $350 billion was never used. The Obama Administration had no involvement in how or where the money was given to. The $350 Billion used was authorized by Congress and approved when GWB and his Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson were in office and was given mostly to bailout banks and Wall Street when the economy collapsed under Bush's watch.(Source: Treasury Dept.)
Just plug your pie hole Really. Once again you opened it and nothing sensible or accurate came out. This happens with you all the time. You should know by now to keep your yap shut.

Nice try though little man. Too bad you can't figure out how to just sit down, shut up and buckle up because your ride is about to get a whole lot rougher.

With the cultural genocide that resulted from slavery, why shouldn't Black Americans have a holiday to celebrate?
