BACKLASH BEING REPORTED!
Well, just maybe, the word IS getting out.
Taxpayers Lash Out
NEW YORK (CNNMoney.com) -- "NO NO NO. Not just no, but HELL NO," writes Richard, a reader from Anchorage, Alaska.
"This is robbery pure and simple," Anna from Denver posted on CNNMoney.com's TalkBack blog this weekend.
"It's our money! Let these companies die," added Claudio from Plainville, Conn.
Is there hope? Are people waking up? Will our lawmakers listen?
Either way this goes now there will be trouble ahead. It is now obvious we are in such dire straights that something must be done. But Joe & Jane Q.
Public are beginning to scream bloody murder over this facist piece of garbage they are trying to shove down our throats.
Now we have talk of adding foreign debt to the bill, and even another economic stimulus (Is this one an attempt to pacify the children? Be wary of

Now we have the those about to be placed in positions of power that no one man should have screaming that we must fast track this and any changes need
to be set aside to do so.
Which way will it go? How are the markets going to take it? Either way, none of us should kid ourselves that no matter what they do now, it has become
clear we are in the midst of the worst financial disastor of most of our lifetimes. Pass or not, what we know now is that it's only going to be a
bandaid, but their are millions of people hemmoraging at this point and only one bandaid.
I honestly thought that this past week was the most befuddled thing I've ever seen in my lifetime, but I have a feeling now, the next week is going
to be the most interesting.
Either way, if any hesitation occurs starting Monday, this is going to be quite a roller coaster ride. They are expecting to pass this by Friday.
I have the slimest of hope now that (thanks to the internet I have to assume) that in 48 weekend (aftermarket) hours the word has gotten out the
American people are fed up and we're not going to take it anymore. Do our legislators dare thumb their noses at us? America has been briefed and they
