You have got to be kidding me. I just heard on FOX News’ On the Record from the lips of Sen. Lindsey Graham (R-SC) that part of the Democrats’ proposed bailout agreement was to take a significant percentage of the money recovered on the bailout and put it towards homeownership groups (a.k.a. ACORN) instead of paying down the portion of the debt created by this bailout.
No wonder Sen. McCain had to return to Washington at the request of Sec. Paulson via Sen. Graham.
No wonder the Democrats ran around all day like someone pulled the fire alarm screaming, “We have a deal!”
And it’s no wonder why Barack Obama rushed to speak to reporters after the meeting about how he thinks that them returning to their freakin’ jobs gets in the way of “getting things done.”
I’m extremely pleased someone came back and was willing to turn the ‘deal’ upside down. The Democrats version of “getting things done” equals screwing you and me, the God-loving, hard working, provide for our families, don’t need a bailout, American taxpayer! You Sen. Obama have failed to get anything accomplished of significance in your entire career. Who are you to lecture anyone on “getting things done.”
This is exactly why the fools who caused this problem should not be in charge of trying to solve it!
It is a complete bastardization of our government to take yours and my hard-earned income and give it to people who are not responsible enough to qualify for a home. The entire reason I’m saving every dime I have right now is so that I can buy a home and start a family. Yet, part of the money that would go towards that goal is instead diverted to people that are not responsible enough to save and pay for their own home themselves.
To top it all off, the Democratic ‘idiotship’ reinforces this asinine lack of fundamental finance principles by leading the way for it federally with this part of the bailout plan.
GIVE ME A BREAK! KILL THE BILL! FIRE THIS CONGRESS!
