Well according to Rush Limbaugh I am now a conservative!! I think I am still a LIBERAL however. Why does he think I am a conservative? I guess it is because of my deeply held belief that people ought to pay for what they get and not saddle my kids with the cost. And I deeply think the Wall Street bailout is BS and I am not for handing $700 billion or more to a bunch of bankers and send the bill to my kids!
I also highly resent the way this is being done. We have politicians tripping all over themselves to bail out the rich. The same ones who sat on their asses while poor folks in New Orleans drowned or died in hospitals without power or medications.
I have a 401K too and yes, 50% of it is in the S&P indexed fund. And today I took a bath. But it is a bath I am willing to take if it means cleaning the sewage out of Wall Street. I will pay the price so my kids don't have to pay for our screw ups.
Everybody except for the banks and Wall Street tycoons should be infuriated by this mess. It is time we said NO to the special interest and the rich and powerful. If this bailout is so good, then let's have the tax increases to pay for it NOW and not later. If taxpayers think this is important, we should be willing to pay for it.
To me, it is just like National Health. I am for National Health but if having means I go to the doctor today and my kid gets the bill in 10 years, no thank you. We should pay for what we want now.
Does this make me a conservative??? Nawwwww

Dennis Kucinich, hardly a conservative, voted against the bill along with 94 other Democrats. Limbaugh is a pill popping gas bag.

well, you might be starting to head in the right direction! who said conservatives aren't for national health care? they just don't want it run by the government. we are all in agreement that the bailout was not good and we are happy that it did not happen. we don't need more taxes if the bailout did not happen!

no, he was not
he worked to try and get it passed after it had some revisions to help protect taxpayers
he said he would hold his nose and vote for it

I definitely agree w/ you on the bailout. If it was truly dire that it had to be passed, then either A) raise the taxes to pay for it, since we are already running a 9+ Trillion deficit, or B) cut the $700 Billion dollars out of other spending, ie (pull the troops from Iraq), (cut out all earmark spending), end welfare, and other cuts (paycuts for the Congress and Senate).

No McCain was not gung ho for the bill, but tried to make it acceptable as opposed to what the Dems originally offered. I think both Obama and McCain gave equally weak support.
