Forum Post: 2 Months of BailOuts are more than the Sequester

Two months of bailouts: 170 Billion (85 Billion a Month) Amount in debate in seqiuester: 150 Billion

Clearly we see where their focus is: Wall St.

There isnt anything more that needs to be said. Until people stop relying on the political structure to save them, or attempt to make them care about you, nothing is going to change.

Are we not capable of determining our own future?

Why would people allow Wall St to get 85 Billion a month, and we get to argue about 150 Billion in Cuts? In what perverse universe is this reasonable?

In their diseased brains - YEP.

They seem to stink that they are the center of the universe.

It seems the people, by their actions or lack there of, are pretty fine with it as well. A friend of mine told me today I sounded like his Grandpa, bitching about stuff. Unreal.

Blaringly obvious, the crooks have free reign and have lost all need to hide their criminal activities. Who can stop them .. !

JP Morgan just finagled a sweet deal that resulted in 83 billion in extras. This is on top of whatever their cut of the bailouts are.
