You have sold us out, both Pennsylvanians and generations of American children. You obviously believe the Democrats' lunatic rhetoric that only government can solve the problem. Government CAUSED this problem, sir, by insisting on a HOME for EVERYONE, including those too irresponsible to afford one. Barney Frank and Chris Dodd assured Americans that Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac were financially soluble, but meanwhile the shares of my retirement fund, invested heavily in both of the above, went from $12.25 in September 2008 to a current NAV of $6.32.
Yes, I lost half of everything I have saved for the past decade to you pontificating bastards in Washington DC who are more concerned with your own pay raises, your own livelihood and your own permanent healthcare than the well-being of your constituents. And the situation is going from bad to worse!
Do you read Zogby or Rasmussen? Americans don't think this is a good idea, they see it for what it is...a transfer of wealth from the private sector to the government in the name of CONTROL. Zero for 80, sir, is how many times increased government spending has ended a recession...and I see 0-81 in our immediate future. If you would pull your head out of your warm, fuzzy Beltway butthole and listen to people like me who are losing our asses on a daily basis, you MIGHT be able to see the reality of your position.
