how can they change the rules half way and make all payments from F&F as dividends only ? F&F should be able to pay its way out but instead Washington knows that it is a cash cow and won't let it go. So you lend your neighbor $100 and ask him to mow your lawn as a payback. You get used to someone mowing your lawn and decided that he needs to mow it for life. Isn't that absurd ?
Not quite true ; once you realize your neighbor has cash you change the terms of the deal to make sure he fully pays you back first in full ; otherwise he will take his extra cash and spend it somewhere else and it will take forever for you to recover your $100 ; this way you for sure get your $100 back more quickly and then let him go ; same thing Treasury did change terms to get their money back more quickly
