Seems the Dems are still spending money on AIG, banks and now Obama thinks it's a must that more money go to the Auto Companies. There is a new stimulus bill that will include lots of taxpayer money for roads and infrastructure construction. Lots of pork and I have heard 2 versions, with and without money for main street. Even with a check from the government are you going to be able to keep your head above water? Personally I am tired of the Governments idea of helping "main street"

My 401K is still suffering, but that won't make me go "under'. Will my family's business that has enjoyed success for almost 30 years, continue with the new small business requirements? Oh no. I can see that it will be a gradual loss. When the company is required to give 7 days paid sick leave (not a bad concept, but should be used as a benefit, NOT requirement since the company does not have that kind of profit). Then, with mandatory health insurance, they will slip slide into either bankruptcy or non-existence. But first they will do a layoff of the men with less seniority (pushing more men back into the unemployment lines, food stamps, etc.), then when that isn't enough to continue the business, another layoff, till the business goes under. Man, this is the way to keep America prospering!! <---tongue in cheek

The reason he thinks it's a must for money to go to the Auto industry is because they are largely unionized. The unions supported him in his candidacy (to the tune of $200 mil.) and now they are sending a clear message that he is to return the favor. A favor on top of the fact that Dems plan to pass the EFCA on top of a bailout. Can we say Special Interest? I wonder what sort of crap he will pull out of the hat for the people from CodePink. They sent a clear message the day after election as well, reminding him and the American public that they scratched his, now it's time to reciprocate. Telling people that you aren't controlled by special interests when you get to higher level politics is pure BS. They are ALL owned by someone.
I'm with ya sista!!!
