So, Congress is trying to decide whether we should pay a trillion dollars to bail out Wall Street and Main Street. I am not an economics scholar by any stretch of the imagination. But I am seriously conflicted. If this is absolutely necessary, then okay, let's do it. But I am really not happy about bailing out greedy companies, investors, and people who made poor choices and bought houses they can't afford. I'm all for "it takes a village," but this is ri-damn-diculous if you ask me. Why should I be on the hook for the rest of my natural life? I've got my own debt to contend with. Why should I be burdened with the rest of America's debt? And must action be taken now? I'm all for a real solution, but something that has just been kicked around for a few days seems hasty to me.
What say you?
P.S. Don't get me started on a certain Fox news analyst who says that giving loans to minorities and other risky persons was the root of the downfall. Joker.
