With Obushama, the Rich Get Bailouts and the Poor Get Poorer
Obushama! Is something wrong with the picture? Its the same thing. Obama and Bush Obushama are doing the same thing!
The old and new administrations are essentially the same. They are both trying to bail our way out of an economic downturn by giving more money to the rich and powerful. Today I hear it's going to be another $800 billion in bailouts? Is that 1.5 trillion now - to the rich, to try to keep companies afloat so people can keep their jobs and keep consuming stuff on credit. Great. Thanks Obushama! That is really going to help the poor!
And according to Time online not one dollar will get to the rising number of people living in poverty.
Granted, poverty in America isn't poverty in Haiti, but the injustice of it all irks me. Where is all the change?
Are Lunatics Running the Asylum Obushama? Where is all the change?
Now Obushama tells us he is going to cut 'wasteful' government programs. Yeah right, wait until those special interest groups start complaining! How does that help the poor learn job skills and character that will enable them to work with dignity? It won't.
The churches and welfare agencies are going to see HUGE increases in people needing help with finding jobs and feeding themselves and Obushama wants to start massive infrastructure projects building roads and bridges. Guess who is going to get awarded those contracts? Not the poor!
How is that a change?
Real Change would be to help the churches help the poor learn character. Learn SPECIFICALLY NOT to go into debt! Instead, there are 10 million more poor people now than in 2007 and Citi Bank - who hands out credit cards to people like a drug dealer trying to hook new users - they get a bailout!
The poor have dignity and are created by God to work. Government programs that increase availability of credit aren't going to help the poor!
Okay, I need to breathe. Sorry, I get so worked up when I see solutions offered by our government that make the situation worse.
