I am not a very learned person when it comes to economics and how the government uses money. But, from what I can tell lately, no one, and I mean NO ONE is being held accountable for their bad financial decisions. I don't believe the government should be bailing out folks who are making bad choices. Not individuals and certainly not big corporations. Where is the accountability people? I have a great deal of sympathy with homeowners who are looking at foreclosure, but I have to say, I believe many of them over extended themselves in the first place. I noticed how so many young people were buying or building huge HUGE homes. Why do you need that much space for a family of say..oh.. five? How do you sleep with the knowledge that if one of you loses your job, you can't make the house payment? Yes, I have sympathy, but if we all made financial decisions based on what we can afford on one paycheck if it comes down to it, there might be less wailing and gnashing of teeth now.
And I don't believe it's the right thing to do, adding to the national debt, by fixing bad corporate decisions and rewarding those in power who are so wealthy they aren't personally in danger of losing anything. Just saying.
