I can think of a couple of reasons.
1. You did not give obama/frank/dodd/etc a lot of money, so you get no money.
2. You are probably not a minority or an illegal, so no possibility of currying favor and getting a vote, so you get no money.
3. You are probably not poor (which also ties into #2), so you get no money.
4. You probably don't have a type of business that the DC people favor (ie: green companies, etc), so you get no money.
5. You probably were responsible with your mortgage, so you get no money.
6. You are probably a hard working, honest, responsible person, so you get no money.
Hell, someone's got to pay for all of this, right? Guess who it is?
