I am, even as I type, listening to Senator Obama speak for the bailout. He made a statement that has been used time and time again when asking the American People to get in line and cooperate. He said, “we will all have to sacrifice.”
Well, news flash for you Mr. Obama, and you Mr. Bush, We have been sacrificing.
I would ask how are you gentlemen are going to sacrifice? Is there any way that YOUR families are going to have to suffer, give up, sacrifice, for the good of our country? OUR families may have to postpone college, lose jobs, hold down multiple jobs, fail.
What will you personally sacrifice, as an example, so we can, in good conscience, sit at our supper tables and tell our children that they have to sacrifice their future, for the good of our country?
President Bush warned, “We are in the midst of a serious financial crisis. Our entire economy is in danger.”
I would say to him that YOUR entire economy is in danger, MINE is already in the tank.With sub-inflation rate raises for the last several years, rising health insurance costs, children in colleges with rising costs and reduced student aid, sky high gasoline and heating prices, my world had been in a pinch for quite a while.
Well Mr. President, now that YOUR economy might feel a pinch and the multimillion dollar CEO’s are hurting, well something must be done.Drop everything and bail’em out.
Some kind of health care reform will have to wait.
Maybe we can afford to educate the next generation, this one will have to fend for itself.
