Did you know that our government has committed $8.5 trillion to prop up failed companies? It’s crazy. In essence, we are telling them that failing is good, because they will get money for it. This doesn’t keep businesses competitive, nor is it good for consumers. Check out the petition at Right.org and their bailout calculator.
Although I have no doubt that Congress will ignore it, I have signed the petition. If you are a taxpayer and you care about our nation, I hope you will do the same.
