Earlier this year, the US government sent out what they called the "stimulus package". From all observation, it was fairly successful. Yet in the "bailout package" the average taxpayer doesn't get squat, except for the assumption that loans will still be available.
Note to gov.!!!
We don't WANT to borrow more money, ESPECIALLY from our own government.
How about another "stimulus package", except instead of loaning it to the banks, why not give it to the people. But instead of $600-$1200, make it $10000-$20000. Those people, would then in turn, get their loans caught up, and prop back up the banks, and that money would be directly sucked back up by the tax system, yet our country may avert financial armageddon.
Somehow, I don't think the gov wants people to have this kind of power over their own financial destiny. They want us to remain slaves to credit, and the powerful banking system, where people make their living off of other peoples hard work.
Demand from your government what is rightfully yours. The persuit of happiness.
