While Wall Street is purchasing private jets,$90,000 area rugs,$14,000 waste baskets and awarding themselves $18B in bonuses there are family members burying loved ones that were struggling to survive but didn't. The growing number of deaths triggered by unfortunate economic circumstances is tragic and very disturbing.
Everyday thousands are experiencing the pinch. Just this week alone a record number of jobs were lost.
The President lashed out at Wall Street calling it "outrageous." It is far beyond that, it's unacceptable and enough is enough. In the real world,when a company fails Heads roll, especially after squandering taxpayers money to top it all off. This action needs to be taken before any more money is even considered being given to Wall Street or any corporation that's failing. Otherwise, let them suffer the consequences of their own demise.
As a concerned citizen, it is my duty to stay in touch with the President and congressional representatives I campaigned and voted for. I've hesitated to express my concerns but as the saying goes, there is power in numbers. Now that we have a President with a open door policy that invites us to be a part of changing things.
