Bush just showed us how he cares about us. By making us bail out greedy ass business men. Why are we saving them, we need to be bailed out! But I'm not the only one upset:
"Companies, like individuals, should be held responsible for their decisions," wrote Jorge from El Paso, Texas. "This buyout does not address the other problems in the pipeline such as personal credit default and market slowdowns in most industries. No new jobs will be created."
"It is time for the financial institutions of this country to be called to the mat. We should be expecting and demanding responsible and ethical business practice, not rewarding it at the expense of taxpayers."
"I'm tired of rewarding institutions and people for the bad decisions they have made," said Dean from Madison, Wis.
"Sure, it will hurt tax payers if/when some of these institutions fail, but perhaps we need to let that happen. We do not need more big government involved in our lives. Enough is enough."
"It's our money! Let these companies die," added Claudio from Plainville, Conn.
And the kicker for me, is the payout the CEOs are getting. This is the most illogical thing I've ever seen. I get that we are trying to save our economy, but we didn't break it, greed did, these CEOs did. If you ask me, they are the true terrorists in our country.
