Who Pays for the $700 Billion Bailout? You Already Know the Answer!

Updated: 11/21/2008 - Wall Street is nervous. Main Street is angry and Congress is, what else, busy playing the blame game. The Senate is expected to vote on a new version of the $700 billion bailout tonight (Wednesday). The move comes after the House’s stunning defeat of the Bush administration’s bailout proposal on Monday. That defeat prompted the blame game as members on both sides of the aisle started their political posturing. The bottom line, right now, voters don’t care about the politics. They care about their wallet, their life savings and their family’s future. It’s time Congress paid attention.

Republican National Convention

Updated: 09/01/2008 - The Republican National Convention opens Monday in Minneapolis, but all eyes are on Hurricane Gustav. New Orleans is literally a "ghost town" as tens of thousands flee to safety. No one wants to repeat the mistakes which happened three years ago during Hurricane Katrina. New Orleans undertook the largest evacuation in Louisiana's history. "Let's prepare for the worst, pray for the best", were the words from Louisiana Governor Bobby Jindal. Today, John McCainn echoed those words as he cancelled most of Monday's opening day ceremonies. That was the right decision. I'm a political junkie, but this is not the time to talk about Republicans or Democrats. That debate can wait. Tonight, and for the next few days, it's time to pray for the safety of everyone in the path of Gustav.
