I wished we could afford to buy a house We are tired of living in a apts. My husband has been lucky and he still has a job. We need jobs and a sense of security. People are in a FRENZY trying to figure what to do or where to go to survive in this horrible depression. We need for people to thrive and care for their families. It's getting so bad we can't afford to go our for dinner or a movie anymore. We have to be tight with our money. If my husbands hours keep getting cut we will be applying for Food Stamps. People are getting desperate for HELP!!!! Where's Our BAILOUT??????

No JOBS. You knew this would happen after the credits ran out. Just like sales for cars died after Cash for Clunkers ended.
Need to create jobs in the dreaded private sector, not just the public. There's been no recession for them comparatively. Need to cut the capital gains tax and extend the Bush tax cuts for everyone in December, especially for small businesses.
