Just Sayin'...

Real Estate Agent with Coldwell Banker Holman Premier Realty

I was speaking with a co-worker today and we both had this epiphany about the whole stimulus and bailout garbage.

We are bailing out the very companies that are holding our feet to the fire -- raising credit card interest rates to 29.99% when you paid a day late, refusing to work with you on a short-sale, taking your 401K retirements, etc.

Why are we doing this???  They say, 'They are too big to let fail". 

I say, "Let them!".

I bet the rest of the country would agree with you on this one! I know I would. Do you think we should start a petition? lol

I just about fell out of my chair when I got the udpate to my credit card and it said I would now be charged almost 30% interest on unpaid balances.  Now I am one that is fortunate enough to pay off my credit card every month but for those who can't this incredible jump is just another slap in their face.

From your mouth to the administrations ears. The more the government gets involved, the more trouble we seem to have.
