They won't answer questions.
I've read it and I had a bit of thinking to do afterward. I do like a lot points, but too wordy. We all are feeling the crunch, no doubt. Credit
where due. Ideas from another poster on ATS.
Dear Senator, Congress,
I am an American Citizen and have been working to support myself and my family since I was seven-teen. I have also supported the government, in
which case I feel that I have a say in how it's operated. Such is the situation of more than 138 million other taxpayers and potential voters in
these great UNITED STATES OF AMERICA.
The purpose of this letter is very simple.
I am formally and respectfully requesting that you send me and my family, our bail-out package immediately. $5,000.00 should get us started. We
reserve the right to request more funds, should we deem it necessary. That judgment will be made at our discretion. We reserve our right to privacy
and ask that you not question our intentions as to how we disburse our bail-out package. In addition, we insist that we are to proceed without
oversight or judiciary review. Understand, that we as individuals can make our own decisions as to how we should handle our funds. Those, who we
initially relied upon to perform this function have failed miserably, inspiring nothing but distrust in their methods of making financial decisions
and ensuring economic stability. Since we are being asked to accept, as fact, that the Government knows what it's doing with its finances, we expect
the same courtesy. Your compensation, as a party to this agreement shall be limited to, our consideration to vote for your re-election.
Obviously, you can understand that the entire idea of the previous content is utterly ridiculous, much as the governmental re financing of Corporate
America is a ridiculous expense to the taxpayer. The only way to solve this financial crisis is to let these elitists, fail. Sanction the destruction
of the financial institutions involved in this fiasco! There will always be willing groups ready to pick up the pieces and take ethical
responsibility, where others would not.
The result of assistance to these corrupt corporations is that it only serves to set the playing field for this debacle to happen again. For
heaven's sake, hold someone else accountable besides the taxpayer! Someone else like, oh I don't know, the people that created this mess. Government
would have no compunction holding a citizen/taxpayer accountable for devious dealings. These wealth mongering executives are no different. If nothing
more, we should make examples of them. Are we out of our collective minds allowing those who wrought this calamity to engineer solutions to escape
from it? Their solutions would only benefit the 4% elite. These executives are criminals and should be prosecuted, not rewarded with bonuses,
retreats, tax shelters and bail-outs. Or are those same rewards a bit too close to home for you to do anything? Are you going to ignore the rampant
disregard for the well being of the people for profit's sake? Sure you are! A fact that has become too apparent when $100 billion dollars worth of
"Bacon" was added to the bail-out package, despite the enormous public outcry against it. Now, laden with special interests, senate and
congressional majority voted YES. No doubt a slap in the face of the constituents. Were the senate and congress waiting for it to become so confusing
that no one would understand it? Is that why they voted yes, because they didn't understand? Mr. President couldn't wait to use his pen, and did
everything he could to rush this awkward package through. Now that it's been passed, he calls for "us" to "wait" patiently. Aren't those
priorities a bit backwards? If we were in fact to go ahead with the bail-out, shouldn't we have taken the time to perfect this thing before hand?
