Really, this is getting old. Record unemployment, record foreclosures, etc, etc. Some of this caused by the very companies who seek aid.
Sure, people who bout too much house are responsible for themselves right? People who didn’t get training for a new job before they got the boot should be responsible for themselves right? Sure, I can go with that. BUT should the companies that gave these bad loans and (knowing that they were bad) and bundled these loans up in a marketable security and made record profits for years in this system BE RESPONSIBLE FOR THEIR ACTIONS?
Well, with this 20 Billion bailout, Citi Bank shares have soared, so they seem to be benefiting from bad choices, where are all the neo-con capitalist no socialism when it comes to universal health care at now?
Remember over the last 15 years or so, whenever universal health care came up some moron who was broke as a joke anyway would rant: “Whose gonna pay for it?”, Looks like the money was always there just not the will.
Fact is, part of employer's problems (as far as being COMPETETIVE is health care), the only fair thing to do is to begin a universal healthcare program, a new system needs to be made. Well, at the least I would expect some “early” tax rebate checks for the average guy who needs help right now, I’m just saying…
