The squeaky wheel gets the grease! You have spoken loud and clear not only to your representatives! They forgot that it was your money, your children’s and yes, your grandchildren’s money! While we all realize we need to do something. We also realize that it needs to be on the side of us. The American people. How do they do they get it on our side? Rewrite the bill as a lending authority, a work out bill. Get rid of the Golden Parachutes…no Nancy, you did not get rid of them. The bill voted on today exempts New people on board from getting a Parachute! The ones there now still have them! When the American people really understand these bills, especially the first one..Katie, bar the door!
We do know that many were illegal immigrants, many had no income, nothing down, many clearly did not qualify. You were the ones that made the bad loans, The Banking Community took the risk, we don’t want to pay for your greed! With that said, did our representatives make sure those kind of loans would be hindered in any way? I doubt it. This is about a lot more than houses.

The Democrats don’t need the Republicans to vote on this bill. They are the majority. They don’t want to take the heat if it does not work..and people there are no guarantees that it will work. Thank God 133 of the Republicans and 95 Democrats had some common sense. Thank God that some Republicans balked at the first bailout bill and got some changes in there. Maybe there is still hope that we may have some statesmen left in Washington.
When 165 Economists say “wait a minute, let’s look at this a bit harder, it pays to listen. Link below at bottom of page:
Most families have a budget they have to work with, to live on. We know money does not grow on trees as you have been led to believe. We expect the government to live within their budget. How can you ask us to sacrifice when you are continually putting pork or earmarks in bills? Nothing seems to get passed unless it’s a ‘you scratch my back and I’ll scratch yours.’ Compromise is important. Bi-partisanship is important. Greed and stupidity is not!
We know we are having a cardiac arrest in the financial realm. People are soon going to be suffering. Get on with it. Find something that works but make sure it does not bleed us and our children’s children dry! Make sure you think of us when you are voting. PUT YOUR COUNTRY FIRST for a change instead of who you owe favors. Get rid of the Pork. We had to a long time ago.
The real story is you. You have made your thoughts heard. Your reps were afraid to vote against you today. 95 Democrats and 133 Republicans heard. The rest wanted to hurry with the vote. They wanted to play politics.. the blame game. They were more interested in that versus bipartisanship. They made me want to barf. Sorry we know who is to blame and we are just about ready to fire the whole gangI They don’t want to lose their jobs so they blame each other. There were apparently 95 Democrats that got their feelings hurt too.Sorry Pelosi,they did not go for this particular bailout either! 12 of the 37 on Frank’s own committee did not go for this either. It was the American people that were and are ready to have a Boston Tea Party. Except we were going to throw out the bums we elected! Guess what Pelosi and Frank, those reps went with the people. That’s a good thing too Martha!
One good thing Acorn is now missing from the bill. Whoo Hoo! As far as Golden Parachutes go, they are not gone from the existing bill.It will only eliminate new ones that come on board. Did you owe them a thank you? Did those companies or executives contribute to your campaigns?
Of course, now they are saying that they did not ‘market it well enough to the American people’. Guess they need an expensive ad to convince us?
Read the excellent links below, excerpt from Craig Smith.
Why are we turning to the very perpetrators for the answers to the problems they caused in the first place? Are we crazy? Go back to the same folks who broke it for a fix? Craig R. Smith says accountability required NOW
Free markets works when they are operated under accountability. The only effective help the government can offer would be to immediate halt wasteful spending and begin to reduce the national debt. Fiscal responsibility at the government level would do more to instill confidence than any bailout a bureaucrat can offer. Bureaucrat bailouts are designed to bring new contributions into their campaigns. That is a huge part of the problem. Bailouts do not work unless they are accompanied with accountability.
It would be easy enough to kid ourselves and allow the government to throw huge amounts of taxpayer dollars at the problems and pass it all on to future generations. But that would be like putting a band-aid on a gaping wound. The patient will still bleed to death, just at a slower pace.
Accountability, not blame, is required NOW. Sacrifice, not politics, is the necessary cure. I know it isn’t a popular message but it is reality. Americans are willing to do what it takes to strengthen the country if they know they will not be burned once again by politicians who are more interested in power and position than they are about what is best for America.
It is time for the speaker of the House to drop her blame game and do what is best for America. It is nauseating to listen to the speaker lay blame at the feet of the current administration when she knows all too well that her democratically controlled Congress blocked all attempts to regulate the industry. Why can’t both sides stop the attacks and start with the bipartisan cooperation they allegedly desire?
Our best years are ahead if we learn from the mistakes that have been made and not look to government for the answers to our problems. Government is not the solution to the problem; government is the problem. We must work together. We must allow free markets to punish those who did wrong, weed out the weak borrowers and reward those who borrowed honestly. If we don’t, we are headed for even more difficult times.
We can avoid those difficult times if we believe in less government, more personal responsibility and accountability from leaders in both the private and public sectors.
