With jobs being lost all around me, unemployment insurance running short or running out altogether, states having to issue I.O.U.s as paychecks, banking institutions & Wall Street collapsing needing taxpayer bailouts and several businesses closing their doors, and what do I hear this morning? I heard that the innaguration is costing the taxpayers another $150 MILLION dollars. This sounds more like a coronation to me. This thing has gotten way out of hand and much too big.
I also heard that one of the banking institutions who received approx. $45 BILLION of bailout money is going under anyway and it was suggested that in order to keep it going that the government should just take it over. The government should have just let every business go bankrupt just like normal people who get into debt do.
It's time for the taxpayers to just stop paying taxes to a government who knows nothing about managing money. I thought Obama might be different, but he's starting out his presidency with such an expensive & huge inaguration that it's already making me feel MORE uneasy about our future.
That's just my opinion.
