I'm voting against anyone who voted for this bill. Check your pockets at the door - I'm tired of filling them.

The Auto Toxic bailout should be stopped! You are wasting my taxpayer dollars propping up Auto Firms and UAW Leaders that bled the life out of good these companies. The CEO"S receive big money ( see what Chryslers are getting!! they are just as bad as the AIG type of Finance Firm. Heck! If they think they are soooo important they should qute their job and go to another firm that match their bail out money!!!

Heck! They should be treated like normal working people! I never got 85 percent of my pay for three year sitting on my ass! The UAW should not get any money for their plush health care. They should get the same thing I got... NOTHING !! WHAT WERE THEY DOING WITH ALL BIG BUCKS THEY WERE MAKING???

Unions are bad,bad,bad. They are the major reason why these car companies are suffering in combination with the CEO's who take Millions for doing nothing except driving the company into the ground. I say the auto companies need to file Chapter 11, get rid of union contracts, and restructure and pay reasonable wages for education and experience in those jobs.It is clear to me the unions have paid off the democrats, including Obama. I'm sure he owes them big time... but we will see, won't we......

I am so sick of all the greed and fighting in congress.
Larry Burkette wrote a book in 1991 " The Coming Economic Earthquake." He writes,"the time is approaching when the government can no longer fund its overspending without destroying the business base of America. When that time comes, there will be few options available other than the printing of more money. Every nation that has gone this route has sparked hyperinflation that eventually wiped out the middle class."
Folks... that's me...waitig to see what comes next. God Help Us.
