Bush's address to the nation tonight
I don't care how Bush spins this or anyone else. Why is it that when people purpose using large sums of money to create health care and other benefits for citizens and children it is socialism. Now, tonight, when Wall Street crashes and Bush purposes we do the same freaking thing but instead of health care, education, or anything else we use it to bail out these companies ,it is not socialism?
I don't want the economy to suffer from these companies. But, I mean come on, Democrats have always admitted that they want to use the government as a tool for change. Republicans want the government to never step in and let the market work itself out. Yet, now they are claiming it is time for the government to help.
Why is this justifiable?
Government money for health care, education, ect = Wicked Socialism (ohhhhh be afraid)
Government money to bail out bad companies does not = Wicked Socialism????
I am kind of rambling; yet, my point is liberals are viewed as demons for even considering using tax money to help the common citizen, but Bush is not lumped in the group for doing the same thing for wall street companies. I am really just venting and seeing if there is anyone out there that thinks the Republican president is a hypocrite with this move.
If you respond, care to leave a prediction of what you think is going to happen to the economy?
