Bailout Blues

For what it's worth, I'm opposed to the bailout plan (I refuse to call it a "rescue" plan) that just passed the Congress and was signed into law. I opposed the original plan, too. This whole bailout is based on fear and scaring the middle/lower classes, it privileges the wealthy, it has avoided any kind of public scrutiny and deliberation, it was rammed down our throats, and it just makes it all the more difficult in the end for my children to live without the burden of a crushing national debt hanging over their heads. I say let Wall Street and Main Street take whatever lumps we've got coming.
