The US senate just passed a bill that transfers the remaining money the middle class somehow managed to hold onto into the hands of its fat-cat friends.
In someone else’s words, “What started as a three-page “blank check” request for $700 billion to buy “toxic” assets on Wall Street, has now passed the Senate as a 451-page pork-laden piece of detritus.”
Seriously, did they think no one would read this thing?
Seriously. Did they?
They were right, it seems.
