It fell on deaf ears.
There was nothing in the bail-out to force them to use it for loans, only strong suggestions.
Nothing in that give-away to help the millions losing their homes, instead they blamed them for getting in that situation.
The common line was, It was their fault for buying a home beyond their means. Even tho the number one reason for bankruptcy or foreclosure was medical cost.
I'm tired of give aways to Corporate America and being told that I don't understand the complex issues of the financial world.
Well I do understand that the victims of Katrina are still waiting, the gulf is a mess,people are losing their homes, jobs, no health care, I could go on an on.
Yet AIG and the banking industry take our money and spend it on full page adds thanking their investors,(not we the people) , expensive junkets or take-overs of other companies.



Again Kucinich was right.
