The government just passed an unprecedented 700 billion dollar plan to bail-out the financial industry. The total cost of which is expected to exceed 1.4 trillion when all is said an done. An effort led by Nancy Pelosi, apparently backed by President-Elect Barack Obama, is already considering a bail-out of the United States' three major automobile manufacturers, who have proven (even in strong economic times) that they can barely make a profit. The legislature, led by Nancy Pelosi is also in the middle of crafting a 'homeowner bailout' plan which essentially forgives greedy homeowners who purchased a house far too large for them to afford, and rewards with thousands upon thousands of dollars worth of interest rate reduction... while those of us who pay on time, get nothing. So... who is going to pay for all of this? You and me. You, me, your children, mine. The people who work hard for a living. The people who pay 1/3 of their income to taxes. The people who bought a house within their means in an effort to build equity and have ownership in something. Us. We will be paying for their greed, for the government's manipulation of the free market, for their incompetence. WE will pay. What are your thoughts on all of this? Does it bother you at all? Does the sting of government taking from you, and giving to someone else feel right to you? Do you support these plans? How do you think the constitution fits into all of this? Does the government even have the right? Do you think people will ever learn? Or maybe they will learn to keep doing what they're doing... since they seem to be benefiting from it? Maybe you and I should stop making payments on our house today so that we can get our interest rates lowered? Does this make you mad?
