To confront the serious economic challenges our nation faces, there have been some bold initiatives presented to this country. And of course, Wall Street to Main Street is watching impatiently to see what will work and what will fail.
It has been presented as a new era of responsibility and cooperation. So, do we look beyond the short term political calculations and rhetoric to reinvest back into this country our hard earned cash? And these days it is definitely hard earned. We are promised if we do, our investments will make America stronger and more prosperous moving forward.
Through the Recovery Act, the Stability Plan, and the Housing Plan, we are told that immediate measures are being made to assist families and working people. And we are told there will be transparency in every thing that is done and that we can track all monies given as bailout remedies at www.Recovery.gov
We are promised a renewed commitment to transparency in government and after what we have seen thus far with taxpayer money being wasted on greedy CEO’s and banking institutions, I hope we see changes immediately. And if transparency shows that the American people are still getting ripped off, who will hold these institutions accountable? We should all take the opportunity of holding our representatives fully accountable for the decisions they make.
So, as I am venting I hope you join with me and really make an effort to be watchful of monies being wasted and make others aware that we are all in this together, and we need to really stay conscious of what is said and presented by both parties and this administration, CEO’s and the banks that hold our money hostage.
Please stand up and speak out. Let me know what you think about the bailout plans, the Recovery Act, and other plans. Will they work? Why or why not? Will the process and results really be transparent? Share your thoughts and vent your feelings. If we really want change, let’s create it together.
Vent, Baby, vent!
