Resolved Question: How did John Paulson make
I understand that he bought CDS on low tranch CDOs however how would that give him money? If he bought the CDS would that not mean that he owned the bonds as well? So how did he make money on it? Please explain thoroughly, best answer receives best answer. Thank you. Joey so then if the bond defaults, does the ACTUAL bondholder get any money? I see so some of the bondholders did not have CDS and those are the ones Paulson bought incase they defaulted?

Resolved Question: Should we say a little
on $9,000,000,000.00 if profits from betting against the housing market?
Paulson's tax bill, if he were required to pay taxes like regular people, would have financed 1/3 of our Social Security Disability people for an entire year.
Should we pray for Zaza or just remember to bring her some soup when she is sitting is a cold apartment one day?
Oh. That won't happen to Zaza. She is so special.

Resolved Question: How about another round
John Paulson earned $9,000,000,000.00 betting against the mortgage market and paid no Income Tax on this money. Good for him but let's put this into perspective.
Had Paulson been required to pay the same tax rate as a Middle Class American, around 35%, he would have owed around $3,150,000,000.00 in taxes.
There are around 8 Million Americans who are disabled and receive Social Security Disability which averages around $12,000.00 per year.
Do the math and see that if Paulson had paid taxes like anyone else, his contribution would have covered over 30% of these people for the entire year.
And Paulson is just one guy.
So the next time a Tea Bagger tells you that we can't afford to care for the elderly and disabled, tell them to take a flying fck at at rolling donut.
