image for Wal-Mart to ask for Bailout
Wal-Mart plans on hiring a couple more People Greeters.

Representatives of Wal-Mart testified before Congress yesterday requesting $10 billion in bailout money.

"Critics say that our business is striving, and that is true. I do not come here asking to bail out a company that is about to fail.

"We at Wal-Mart believe that the best defense is a good offense. Our begging for bailout money now will prevent us for asking for asking for money when times get tough.

"The money we ask for will allow us to have people greeters 24 hours a day at our Supercenters. We will also be able to keep our in-store restaurants open an extra hour every day."

There is no word on whether the Democratic-controlled House will bring this for a vote, but House Minority Leader John Boehner suggested that Wal-Mart should have asked for $50 billion to prove that they have a need.
