Bail Out!

Why does the average American citizen have to bail out big financial institutions and their CEO's? Are we making their big bucks? Are we getting all their benefits? Do we live in mansions, have chauffeurs, maids, etc.? Do we dine at expensive restaurants and have front row seats at the Music Center? Do we have fabulous vacations? Do we fly first class? Do we buy expensive clothing and jewelry? Of course not -- we're average American citizens and not the privileged few who rely on the average citizen to do the hard work. We scrimp and can no longer save because the privileged few need more expensive assets so prices are raised on everything to accommodate these thoughtless few. The average citizen doesn't have access to $700 billion to dwindle away. There's no more middle class - just rich and poor.

Well said, Marnie. At least I'm in good company now that I've moved from middle class to poor.
