$700 billion to bail out the financial industry! Actually, over $800 billion once they got done "sweetening" the bailout package. That is what the US Congress voted to allow Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson to hand over to his Wall Street buddies, with virtually no oversight. And that was just for openers.
The Federal Reserve and the US Treasury on their own have dispensed hundreds of billions more to financial firms. What's more, the Federal Reserve, which is a private company owned by foreign bankers, refuses to identify to whom it has given the US taxpayer dollars that it has loaned into existence out of thin air (created from debt that will hobble our children and their children).
