    It's yet more looting of the private sector by career politicians and their cronies.

    UNBELIEVABLE! Do You Morons who elected this MORON realise what you have done to this country? You have chosen that YOUR kids and grandkids PAY for the retirement of others in the FREAKING private SECTOR of this economy.

    You haven't voted for HOPE and CHANGE you voted for all out ECONOMIC slavery to YOUR kids and grandkids.

    Don't even refer to YOURSELF as an American anymore--you're DISGUSTING and nothing more than a panty ass wipe.

    BTW--TEA PARTY--YOU ROCK.

    You know I would have loved a "bail-out" during the tech sector crash of 2000, and I am certain that Enron employees who lost everything, including their retirements after working for Enron for decades would have liked a "federal government bailout."

    It appears that this administration and democrat controlled government is intent on "only" bailing out UNIONS. Of course they are the number ONE supporter in every single election regardless of what the people they elect really stand for. It's all about the Union worker. Union workers always support DEMOCRATS.

    It should have been evident to most of you people that voted for this--during the campaign --magnificantly--rehearsed--perfectly pronounced speeches that Obama spoke about. Union workers were it. If it didn't become clear to you then--then maybe you might have recognized it--that we the taxpayers of this country spent billions to "bail out" the auto unions in this country--in this NEW--"too big to fail" policy of our federal government. If not that--then maybe you saw something in this new take-over of our health care by the Federal Government, in which Obama made a deal--behind closed doors--that guaranteed that Union workers, which are inclusive of Federal government workers--would not be taxed on the medical benefits that they receive from their employer until 5 years later than a non-Union worker.

    No you didn't vote for Hope and Change. What you voted for was financial slavery to your kids and grandkids to bail out others that have failed in the "private sector" of this economy whom have made some financial mistakes. And it's all about "saving" the Union vote for the Democrat Party.

    Congrats!



    BTW--Tea Party--YOU ROCK!
