As is usually the case with these things, details about the Treasury’s announcement tomorrow are leaking out to the media. CNBC says the government plans to open its checkbook to insurance companies. To this point, only AIG has gotten help, and that was during the panic time of last September. The Treasury’s also said to be working on a group of measures for struggling homeowners and small businesses. I’m very anxious to see what form that help takes. I’ve read a lot of angry emails in recent months with hardworking people rightly asking, “What’s in this bailout for us?”
