I Get It Now Don Henley

I should have stayed home. I'd like to thank the idiots (mostly Republicans) who tanked the bill today.

The bailout was needed by people like me, my friends and family, the middle class who have been responsibly investing for our retirement and childrens' education. We all know that Social Security will be gone by the time we would get it. We were saving for ourselves, not depending on the government.

The rich are still going to get richer, no matter what. People like me, still getting screwed.

Go girl, you are on the money! I'm afraid they are all Americans to me and most of those people at the podium with Nancy Pelosi just half an hour ago should take a look out of their own back yard and around the bloody globe a bit more! Especially that larger bloke with specs and a loose tie; he was a tosser.

You are right on. They should take that proposed amount of money and dispurse amongst us working folks. We would then put it back into the system and get the economy going again. We could pay into our loans and help out the banks that way. In other bad news, the Dow dove another 700 points today. When will the bleeding stop?

I hate that my retirement is tanking. I also hate that we're bailing out huge banks with poor management. I don't know which one is the bigger bummer.

Perhaps it's that no one is concerned with the people who do all the right things... no debt except for their home, cars paid off, saving for retirement. That and my children and grandchildren will get stuck with this $700B bill.

If you have 100,000 invested, you lost 5000 today. Which blows.

Your investments will most likely be fine just as long as you keep them in for the long haul - the market will eventually balance out. We are like you, middle class (probably more like lower class, actually), and we have some investments, but we are not worried about it. The market goes up and down, it always has. As long as you're living within your means and trying to save what you can, you'll be okay. :)
