The Bailout: TARP -- threat or menace?

Neil Barofsky, the inspector general of TARP, is nearly as outraged about the mishandling of the bailout as you are.  MSNBC's Dylan Ratigan interviews:
Compare the haste with which our leaders facilitated the theft of $24 trillion of our money with the reluctance of the same exalted personages to spend a fraction of that amount on our health. A hundred or so years ago, our great-grandfathers would have gotten a few neighbors together, driven the wagon to town, burned down the banks, and tarred and feathered the congressman. What're we going to do instead?
