Wow! America is really on it's death bed! If we owe China & Russia whom we have never had solid realtions with over history, whats to stop them from taking over our Country.
For one thing, they don't have nearly enough money — you don't seem to understand how much is required for a "bailout". And their wealth is not in the form of cash. Bill Gates doesn't have $50 billion in cash sitting around, it's $50 billion in Microsoft stock, which cannot be used to help anything. And if there is a market panic and stock market crash, those billionaires will be a lot less rich because their stocks will have declined.
The proposed bailout involves using $700 billion in CASH to buy distressed loans. All the billionaires on your list put together most certainly do not have a total of anywhere near $700 billion in cash sitting around, probably not 1% of that. And if they sold their assets to raise as much cash as possible, that in itself would cause the market crash they're trying to prevent.
