WE The People are feeling More Disenfranchised by the day...No Bailout for us.....and yet the CEOs get BONUSES !!!! The People that created and contributed to this Mess are getting Bonuses ????WHY ? Millions of Folks are out of Work and yet these Greedy People are being given " Retention Bonuses"??? And about "THE Contracts"...Millions of Workers have been fired, and Some of them worked under Contracts too..."Workers" did Not Break their Contracts, but they have been harmed and lost their wages and jobs and benefits. But CEO's get Rewarded with OUR money, while so many are hurting...This WHOLE Financial Situation is Broken.....168 Million Dollars would Feed Thousands of People, House Thousands and provide Healthcare.
I live in Ohio-College kids are moving home with parents after losing loans for school...and walk in ANY bank here- and guess what-There is NO Loans available for Anything - school, home or cars...The Banks were Given Bailout Money- But NOW they are Hoarding it....it has Never made it to the People. Not a Penny.
Most people here have NO Health Insurance or Healthcare....and many of my friends are Underemployed or Searching for a Job right now...They have lost their Savings and their Retirement Funds....and their Future. So Many Good People that have lost their jobs and homes, Teachers, Nurses and even Policemen....VETS that have returned to NO Jobs.
I am working a smattering of part time jobs getting paid what I made as a Lifeguard 30 years ago...with NO Benefits and No Healthcare...My Son is delaying College for a year because there are NO Loans available here....Most of my Hood is wrestling with the same issues, Job Loss and many foreclosed homes...Financial Devastation.
My Neighborhood is full of Angst and Depression over this..No I won't be knocking on doors....Not this time...
It's up to DC to Start listening to Us, the People...and they haven't been...and they have not been thinking about us..they were busy taking care of the Corporate GEO's...There has been NO Relief for us The People...NONE...
