I really don't know what to make of the presidents request that we all bail out Wallstreet. I've heard so many pros and cons that I'm confused, for sure.
I do know this however. Who ever termed it "bailout" made a big mistake.
We're all pretty sick of seeing these stinking corporations being "bailed out".
Another thing is that George W. Bush cried wolf once before in getting us into that stinking Iraq war, so I can understand why many people wouldn't want to believe him. He's lied too much. Weapons of mass destruction, etc.
The Republicans, are always for less regulation and oversite and for eight long years now we have had an administration that has been more loyal to companies and corporations than real working people.
These CEO's with their exorbitant salaries and golden parachutes have put the American people in total disgust of them. I'm not sure what this "bail out" would have done to these salaries and golden parachutes, but my guess is that it wouldn't have been enough. Golden handcuffs would be appropriate for these crooks.
And to think that some Republicans said that they voted against the bailout because they're feelings were hurt because of something Nancy Pelosi said is a real laugh. What a bunch of lily livered yellow bellies.
And the congress is going home for the Jewish Holidays?????? You got to be kidding. They should all be in Washington hammering out legislation that will not only fix the problem but will help the American people. How many of us work on Holidays for crying out loud.
Look folks, you don't have to be an Economics Professor, or a Phi Beta Kappa to see that Bush and his Republican cronies have taken us all for a ride.
There's only one thing to do about it.
Vote for someone who knows about and cares about working families and retirees.
Vote for Barack Obama for President of the United States and let's take our country back from these scoundrels.
