Despite unprecedented calls for quick action, the White House’s $700 billion plan to rescue the financial industry appeared to fall apart late Thursday, less than 12 hours after a market-soothing deal seemed likely. A convergence of financial concerns, presidential politics and partisan rancor created an unexpected Washington drama with the nation’s economic future hanging in the balance. more…
Apparently Republicans and Democrats had a meeting last night to negotiate the $700 Billion Dollar Bailout package. But they were too busy shouting and screaming at each other to actually get anything done. After the meeting things have regressed instead of progressed and we don’t know exactly when this will happen.
I am so sick of politics and the antics of a bipartisan government, neither republicans nor democrats care about this country or about the people. All they seem to care about are their stupid arrogant political views and their egos. This country’s economy has gone to the crapper, because of bad decisions made by companies and because we are spending billions of dollars a day fighting a pointless war. The only semi-intelligent idea the government had in years was this “Bail Out Package” and they can’t even come to agreement on that.
How are we, “The American people” supposed to trust out government, when they act less mature than my little baby boy.
Republican presidential nominee John McCain issued a statement acknowledging that a bipartisan White House meeting he appeared to have sought to help showcase his leadership skills on the economy had devolved into a “contentious shouting match.”
I cannot for the life of me understand why we would ever allow people like them to run our country. I don’t care about parties or political views. All I care about is the fact that many of my friends and family cannot afford the basic necessities of life. So how about you ASSES stop yelling at each other like little school girls and get something done!
