Ooooh, this gets me so freaking angry!
I just read today that the Obama administration is thinking of using the remaining money to stimulate small businesses. Ok, that part is great. The
part that is NOT so great is the way they are planning on doing it: giving the money to the banks, and asking them to give it out to the small
WTF?? We just gave the banks billions, and they were "supposed" to give the money to struggling homeowners. That did not happen, and still is not
happening. The banks just sat on the money and turned amazing profits.
So now, they trust the banks to "distribute" the money to the small businesses? Give me a break! The banks will find just as many excuses to not
loan the money to small businesses as they did to not loan the money to home owners. (You make too much money. You don't make enough. Your house
isn't worth it. Your house is worth too much.)
I think most of us agree that if they had just given the money directly to homeowners, things would have ended up much better. So, if they want the
remaining money to go to small businesses, why not just give it directly to them??? Why go through the god-awful banks!? Or use the money for
something else, like paying off the debt, or SOMETHING else. But don't give billions more dollars to the banks again! PLEASE.....the banks cannot be
trusted to divert the money to the people....they won't do it!
I have lost ALL faith in my country. I swear.
