Don't Call It A Bailout

The Hill has a funny story about how Republicans in Congress really don't want to call this a bailout.

Call it an "investment." Call it a "stabilization plan." Call it a "structured rescue plan." Just don't use the B-word: "bailout."

My favorite quote:

"My constituents aren't calling and asking me to help their brokers," said Minority Leader McConnell.

I'd think not.
