The EU really hates helping out Eastern Europe

It's just a fact. First, they don't want to let them work in W. Europe. Now, they refuse to bail them out. According to the Wall Street Journal, European Union leaders, led by German Chancellor Angela Merkel, rejected a call by Hungary for a sweeping bailout of Eastern Europe, as the bloc struggled to find consensus on an approach to the spiraling financial crisis at a summit Sunday.

The global recession has greatly strained the bonds holding together the 27 nations that now make up the European Union, formed in the wake of World War II, and poses the most significant challenge in decades to its ideals of solidarity and common interest.

Solidarity is only really a good idea when it helps everyone, Eastern Europe. Sorry.
