The other day, Nancy left a comment on my post “Bailout Plans Chap My Ass” as follows:
Hey Suzanne, you’re right on. Here’s a clip from Ohio Congresswoman Marcy Kaptur that speaks to this dilemma perfectly (and offers the first cogent solutions I’ve heard yet.)
I hope they act on this! It won’t fix everything (maybe nothing can, now) — but it sure as heck beats what the “powers that be” want from we-the-people.
And hey, isn’t the power supposed to be in OUR hands anyway??? Aren’t our elected representatives supposed to s-e-r-v-e US???
Take 5 and watch the video she shared with me…

I am so glad I am not the only one who feels this way about the bail out of the coorporate world. I understand that we have to do something and cannot let these companies collapse, but I wish we had not rushed into what we did. AIG taking their top-sellers out days later only confirmed this for me.
