Jim Cramer has been pounding the table all week long that Congress must pass the $700 billion bank bailout plan quickly in order to save the U.S. and possibly the entire world from another Great Depression. Cramer has expressed that many people view the plan as a bailout for Wall Street and not Main Street, but he says the alternatives to the plan are far worse.
