The people responsible for the bad loans should be the ones punished...not the nation of taxpayers. the gov't forced companies to make risky loans. and we are to pay for that? not only that...but the people who didn't take on loans they couldn't pay, responsible people living within their means, will just get bent over...the the ones who took on more than they could handle will get compensated???? how ridiculous is that??
we need to eliminate the likes of Frank and Paulson from ever handling OUR money again!

When does the bus leave for WAshington to march...I want to be on it!!! I'm OUTRAGED at my government!!

I am just as angry but really just want something done. We can't refi our home, cant trade in a rig to get a much needed truck and the cost of food is outrageous! My clients are loosing money every day along with rest of us who have invested monies. If we don't do something soon we will all be on the street corner. I agree that a payout to wallstreet isn't the answer but we need something or it will be a long time before we recover from this.

I'm a strong Christian...but if they had to vote or break for Christmas...i'd feel the same way. stay there until the job is done.
