$700 Billion Bank Bailout

I hate politics and I hate doing this here. But I have enough of this economy. People can't afford to pay their mortgages, can't afford to buy food, can't afford to buy gas, and they get laid off by the minute.

I am outraged of this administration's plan to spend $700 BILLION to "rescue" US financial sector. And who's going to pay for that? It's us the taxpayers. And where is this money going to go? To the same institutions that cause this mess in the first place, those people who live in million of dollars mansions and have gazzillion dollars in their bank account.

If we have to pay for it anyway, why don't the government just give each household $1 million? It will solve A LOT of our problems and we will definitely feel the effect right away. I think it's WAY EFFECTIVE, it will stimulate the economy right away. People will pay off their debts, their mortgages, will be able to buy food (it's a fact that more and more middle class families go to the food bank because they can't afford to buy food), will be able to pay for medicines, will be able to send their kids to colleges, will be able to open businesses, and they will not have to worry about the gas prices and retirement for a while, and maybe they can finally afford to get environmentally friendly cars, houses, etc.

The US people have done a lot for their government, maybe it's time for the government to do something for them. Please somebody just start a petition for this or just send tons of emails to the white house or just to anyone.

Sorry for ranting and thank you for listening (or reading). I'm just so tired of this economy.
