Are they about to cave again?

It looks like both political parties are about to f*cking cave again: ["Bush to address nation tonight on economy woes"].
Republican officials said that Paulson had bowed to demands from critics in both parties to limit the pay packages of executives whose companies benefit from the proposed bailout.
This isn't about executive pay packages. This is about the free market. They have to live with the mess they created. We should not have to pay to clean them up. We shouldn't have to pay to ensure their profits.
Let them live with losing everything. Let them live with homelessness. Let them wonder where dinner is coming from. Let them wonder how come you don't have money for a decent vacation once a year because you have to pay more money for oil this year. Live by the free market, die by the free market.
You know, just 10 years ago, the stock market was at 7,000. A healthy correction still means shareholders have a decade worth of gains.
