I don't know about you, but I am sick and tired of bad decisions from our Government. People losing their jobs, their homes, their insurance and their pride. I am on of those people.
The Government decided to use our hard earned tax dollars to bail out these large banks and now car makers. Those banks are not allowing us, middle class citizens, to borrow money. Maybe it's been a rough year and things have not gone well. They know- they needed to use our tax dollars. The banks won't loan money for the citizens to make purchases, so now the companies making those products need to be bailed out too. When will this stop?
If the Government would give the taxpayers the money- ok not the $300 or $600 stimulus check that merely went into our gas tanks this summer. We would be able to restore our credit, make purchases to keep the economy going, even send our children to college.
Yes, we need change. Will it happen fast enough? I already lost my job, will I lose my home, too? No money, no jobs and a lack of confidence that this Government will really be able to help.
In our family, I was laid off the first of December, as the company that I was driving for ceased US operations. My fiancee lost her job in the middle of November, and she has a daughter in college. We are a normal family, struggling to make ends meet and try to pay all the bills. Unemployment doesn't cut it. It won't pay the mortgage. What does the Government think is going to happen?
