[UPDATE] WS Bailout (It's $1 Trillion!) VS Health Care - Make This Go Viral!

To All Readers!

I saw this on another blog and thought this should be shared.
Maybe we can make this a Viral Email for reaching the voters.

It makes the case for Universal Health Care for those who say we can't afford it.
It shows the hypocrisy of governmant spending.

Basically were the government should be spending our money!

How many times?

How many times do we have to hear:

We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to fix Social Security.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to fix Medicare.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to provide health care to ALL Americans.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to help out Americans losing their homes.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to help all our veterans returning from war.
We don't have ENOUGH MONEY to rescue "no child left behind".

BUT...

We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to bail out Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac.
We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to bail out Bears Stearns.
We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to bail out AIG.
We DO HAVE ENOUGH MONEY to pay for an unnecessary TRILLION DOLLAR war.

When the LITTLE GUY needs help, they scornfully say, "GET A JOB!"
But when one of their BIG GUY CRONIES need a bailout, what do they say? SURE, NO PROBLEM. Where's the checkbook?

"But what about the debt we're leaving on the backs of our childen and their future?"
"Children? WHOSE Children? OUR children won't have to pay for this. YOUR children will."

The Republicans have had their hands in our pockets for well over 8 years.
Now they are robbing us blind IN BROAD DAYLIGHT and smiling about it!!!!
The Republicans have shown their true colors and now they expect us to vote them back into office?

What's next? Should we bend over and spread 'em? Oh, I'm sorry, but we've ALREADY DONE THAT!!
SEVERAL TIMES!!!

Vote for REAL change this November.

VOTE BLUE!

Update [2008-9-19 10:45:23 by cobsjo]:

How much will the Mother-of-All-Bailouts cost U.S. taxpayers?

It's $1 Trillion!

Yes, we are in an economic crisis that requires immediate action but why is Wall Street allowed to run around like kids in a candy store.

We fund the lifestyle of these guys who bring us down,

The same guys who get the Bush-McCain's tax cuts,

Who McCain wants to help out with even more tax cuts.

Yes, McCain wants to give these people even more in his third Bush term.

Dear McBush

What about us?

Some see the "WS bailout" as health care.

Sorry, I couldn't resist.

Re: WS Bailout VS Heath Care! Help

I think it is ridiculous how the right wingers who keep saying free market have no shame in looking for bailouts now. I belive in free markets and I believe that everyone in the system needs a lesson to learn, a lesson so severe that they will never forget it.  Soimetimes, I wonder if all is needed is for the masses to revolt and take down the greedy execs. It is just amazing how they justify their multi million dollar bonuses when times are good but they never have to share in the losses when times are bad.

One trillion dollars is 8-10 times what UHC would

cost..

EIGHT TO TEN TIMES..

And there doesn't seem to be any guarantee that the bankers won't want more..

Screw the people. Collective risk, but apparently private benefits.

More here on McCain's crappy health care plan:

All ya need to hear...

Yet, 1st...please don't use the term "viral e-mail", whether it's some moronic site or not.

Moving on: The judge selling Lehman Bros. early this a.m.

""That occurred to me, as well," the judge in the case, James Peck, said. "Lehman Brothers became a victim, in effect the only true icon to fall in the tsunami that has befallen the credit markets."

help us all, someone
