Sure we have money.
Your congress gave it to us. Billions and Billions, just like McDonalds hamburgers. Since it's our money, what we do with it is up to us, not you. What we invest in is our business, not yours.
Don't like the way that sounds? Tough. Somebody's got to be in charge, and it sure as hell isn't your elected officials. They're convinced that we know what we're doing, and when it comes right down to it, they don't want to be held personally responsible for pushing us over the edge.
If we say the world of finance will collapse unless they give us more money, they believe us, just like you believe a guy with a gun standing in the alley when he says "Give me your watch and your money, or I'll shoot you."
See? That's how it works in the real world. We threaten; you cave. What's that? Why do we deserve to be bailed out?
Because we say so. That's why.
