The Progressive Argument Against The Bailout

NOTHING in this "bailout" package will lower the price of the gas you have
to put in your car to get to work. NOTHING in this bill will protect you from
losing your home. NOTHING in this bill will give you health insurance...This
bailout's mission is to protect the obscene amount of wealth that has been
accumulated in the last eight years. It's to protect the top shareholders who
own and control corporate America. It's to make sure their yachts and mansions
and "way of life" go uninterrupted while the rest of America suffers and
struggles to pay the bills. Let the rich suffer for once. Let them pay for the
bailout. We are spending 400 million dollars a day on the war in Iraq. Let them
end the war immediately and save us all another half-trillion dollars!
