The problem this country had giving out loans easily to enrich the economy enriched almost every American in the country, but now that it's time to pay the piper, it's only wall street or big banks CEO that made the money? How about every contractor on down to the county clerk?s office or how about the increases in City and State taxes because of the increase in home values during that era - who benefited from that money. Did they build new parks, build more bureaucracies and city and state paying jobs?
The congress isn't talking about that, because they don't want their constituents upset, even though almost every single constituent benefited. It was not just real estate and wall street, it was main street that was having a party with future expenses that we have to pay now! Not in two weeks but NOW! Every one of us is to blame, and everyone of us should pony up the money to bail out the lenders. My point is that a National Bail-out of sorts is not because a few benefited at the hands of many - but many benefited at the hands of many and now many must pay to fix it. Fair is Fair.
