The Lollipop Boys – The Bailout
The Lollipop Boys discuss the status of the bailout plan.
“The Senate sweetened the bill with an extra 112 billion,” said Dodd. “Now if you can add a little more well placed incentive throughout the House we can easily push this thing through.”
“Don’t worry; I’ll stick to the original plan,” said Frank. “By the way, the 451 pages was a nice touch.”
“Old trick, but it still works. Most Senators don’t even know what they are signing up for, or don’t care.”
“If this works, it will all but destroy any Republican chances. Then after the fools elect Obama we will be able to steal it all,” said Frank.
“Good,” snarled Dodd. “It’s time the people know the meaning of power and who controls them.”
Dodd taps the table a few times, smiles at Frank then returns to the Senate floor. Frank watches Dodd leave and dreams of possibilities.
