Help me understand this. Help me understand why we must all be in such a rush to go into $700 Billion more worth of debt so that we can transfer that money to corporations that are already wealthy. Help me understand why this is so
The following is the text of the proposal sent by the Bush administration to Congress proposing a $700 Billion payout to Big Money corporations managing the little bit of wealth held by middle-class Americans and the huge gobs of wealth maintained by the American upper-crust.
If there really is such a rush, and if the consequences of Wall Street failure are truly so monumental, why don’t those individuals who will benefit from the government bailout pay for the scheme? Why not pass the legislation – along with a special investment income tax that will provide the money to make the deal work?
Psst... what kind of person doesn't support pacifism?
