They either don`t get it or I don`t get it. It just seems like a joke or a nightmare. I really do not think our elected officials know what they are doing. I am barely above water, which I am extremely grateful, but people like me can do a lot of good for the economy by creating jobs if the Feds does something to lighten up the credit markets. I do not believe in handing out money to the unemployeed so they can go and buy alcohol, drugs, guns, or blow it for something not necessary. Never heard the word billions so many times as I have in recent weeks. Forget tax cuts; I will pay the tax increase but have the banks start lending again.
