Exploiting Too Many Americans

Sarah Palin, in an interview aired on CNN today, explains how best to make use of the $700-billion bailout rescue package recently approved by Congress:
"Let's make sure that the priority is, we're gonna help the homeowners who had been kinda sucked into the wrong mortgage, and that was via predatory lenders taking advantage unfortunately and exploiting too many Americans."

I do agree that such exploitation as has taken place is reprehensible, but... "too many"? Is there some appropriate number of exploited Americans that has, unfortunately, been exceeded? After exactly how many exploitations would Ms. Palin feel that predatory lenders crossed the line and started taking advantage?
