$56B is a Much More Reasonable Number

The way I figure it, a body with an 8% approval rating should get about 8% of what they are asking for.

That would be $56B.

These guys cannot be trusted to make a $700B decision with no hearings and no explorations when they created the problem through a complicit wink-wink-nudge-nudge economic policy over the last 70 years (Fannie Mae was created as a federal subsidized lender in 1938).

That is all.
