“At this point, Congress is being asked to support an uncertain entity, costing an uncertain amount of dollars, for an uncertain duration – a decision that will have implications for generations to come and requires absolute certainty.”
– Congressman Jeb Hensarling, TX, and Chair of the House Republican Study Committee
Proposed Wall Street Bailout: $700 Billion
Current US Population: 305 Million people
Your share of the burden: $2,295
The burden for a family of four: $9,180
That's your own personal share. Nearly $2,300 for each and every man, woman, and child in America to pay for a bunch of elitist New York power brokers not to have to bear the burden of their speculation and greed.
This could have been avoided.
Write your congressmen and senators to tell them not to approve this bailout. This site makes it really easy.
