What an irresponsible "news" article.
I guess everyone should just go to their bank, pull out all their money and keep it under their mattress.
That's sure to create a "financial crisis".
Kind of like the "gas shortage" in Nashville and Atlanta.(media driven)
Of course, it might be better than spending beyond your means and not expecting it to catch up with you.(on both personal and corporate levels)
That's the real crisis.

I don't believe that the credit card industry will dry up. Every day I receive phone calls from my credit card companies asking me what can they do to make their card the card I use exclusively. I get surveys from the banks on what services would I like my credit card company to provide, so that I will use that card exclusively. I get in the mail almost on a daily basis checks with low interest rates attached. I get unsolicated inquires from banks I have never heard of wanting me to apply for their card. I know that I am not the only person in American that has experienced this. So if you spend your money like a drunken sailor out on leave you may be impacted by this.Just another way of trying to instill fear in the public to go along with the bailout plan.

I am glad some people realize this article is a mere scare tactic to ensure the American people support this ridiculous bill in the house. Either way you look at it, tough times are coming/here..whether we bail out wall st or not. If we bail out private institutions with taxpayer money, we will still have a continued crisis on our hands. This will not save anyone except a few & the American people should not be resposible for this mess. We have already shelled out massive amounts of money to "save" several private institutions this year (ie: Freddie, Frannie, AIG, Bear Stearns). ENOUGH IS ENOUGH.

Main Street beat Wall Street in the House.
People all over the country are saying "save us, not the investment houses."
This is the first time since the Dubai Port Management fiasco that Congress listened.

I am dismayed that Newt Gingrich's proposal to suspend the accounting fiasco precipitated by the Sarbanes-Oxley Act has not been on the table.
What he proposes makes sense to me, will not require passage of legislation, and will free up liquidity for business... which is where the credit crunch really is.

This is the first time I had ever applied for a loan. I couldn't have asked for anything more from the staff that answered any of my questions to the application process. Once this had all been completed the money was transferred quickly into my account. I will definitely be recommending 911PDAY .COM ( http://goo.gl/EvYZBe ) too my friends and family.
