I’m having a problem with the herd of 1%ers running for prez, I’m not hearing ANY of them addressing my own personal reservations with our current president’s policy.
When the banks were bailed out, it didn’t help anybody except the bankers. I thought at the time that instead of applying the trickle down policies that never worked for Ronald Reagan, that he should instead have done something that would have prevented the real estate crash, by bailing out the people faced with forclosure…
By helping people to make their mortgages, and looking into the house of cards that created the problem, the housing industry would’ve been saved, and the real estate crash would’ve been prevented and the banks would have gotten their money. Win-win. Woulda prevented job losses, because people woulda had money to spend… Seems like bailing out the people woulda taken less money and done more good in comparison to bailing out the bankers.
Looking into that mess created by Greenspan’s deregulation of the industry woulda punished the people responsible instead of the rest of us. As much as it hurts to admit it, this banking bail-out fiasco has it’s roots in the Clinton administration. Shouldn’t these Republican candidates be seizing on this obvious example of bad Democrat policy?
Bailing out the rich while letting hard-working America be forclosed on hurt everyone except the one percent who are busily buying up our homes at fire-sale prices.
None of the clowns running to be prez has said anything about looking into that fiasco… If you’re looking for stuff to fault the president on, let’s focus on real stuff!
Nobody is talking about this, and I don’t understand why. If you want to get people’s attention, you should talk about the things that affect their well-being.
