    Maybe they should have done that before they needed the first bailout, or at the very least after it. I hope we don't give them a dime in this bailout, but we probably will.

    The US won't be paying a dime towards this bailout, as it's restricted to Eurozone countries (the UK isn't even in the Eurozone). The US is a member of the IMF, so will likely contribute to any funding that Greece gets from there, but that has nothing to do with this bailout. This bailout will actually do nothing but delay the inevitable for a few months: Greece will default, everyone will take a huge haircut and Greece will drop out of the Eurozone and, possibly, the EU itself.
