As the President continues to work on immediate job creation, he discusses his proposal for a new fee on the largest financial institutions to ensure that every cent of taxpayer assistance gets paid back. Saying that, "we're not going to let Wall Street take the money and run," he then to discusses the ongoing push to make sure banks can never put our economy at risk again.
The President lays out again his rules of the road for the banks. Now comes the hard part, getting it past the House and the Senate. That's your next assignment, calling and writing your Congress Critter to let them know this must be passed.
If we don't stand up to them this will happen again. With this and the other reforms that have been introduced in Congress that we should be pushing to get passed maybe we can make sure we don't head down this road again.
Another thing it will help with, it will prove that the GOPers are the ones standing in the way of helping the common people, "main street" if you will and not Wall Street. That is hugely important to the re-election and election of Democrats for a while. No, they aren't the only ones. There are some DemWits who have taken money and who support the greedy bankers, but the number is greater on the right side of the aisle. Some of these legislative moves will call them out, IF we continue the rallying cry and point out the hypocrisy of their ways.
You and I both know it is up to us, because the MSM, contrary to conservative belief is not Liberal, it is owned by Conservatives and is run by them. Yes, some of the people who are in the media are of the Liberal strain, but they are not who runs it and who calls the shots.
So, now is the time once again. After we get health care passed, and by the way... IF YOU KNOW SOMEONE IN MASSACHUSETTS, Call them and tell them to get out and vote Tuesday for Martha Coakley. Please. we need to start working on this. Of course there are other items that need to be worked on too.. but this one is very important to our future economic outlook.
Thanks everyone, remember by this President's actions, whether people want or like to admit it, we staved off a 2nd Depression. Yes, we need to get jobs moving again, but with the banks regulated and money getting out to businesses that will help with the jobs outlook too.
