I wake up every morning and go to work, pay my taxes and deal with the ‘pain at the pump’. In plain words, I am one of the millions of Americans who live on main street and will be hit the hardest when the economy fails.

I’m guessing that DEMOCRAT HANK PAULSON and the DEms in Congress SET BUSH UP.....AND the REPUBLICANS will be ACCUSED by these SAME DEMOCRATS that the PUBS BAILED OUT WALL STREET!!! The DEMS roll in this fiasco will be SCRUBBED by them and their media, and PUBS will be left holding thew bag! THE STUPID PARTY that TRIES to HELP the People steps in the TRAP ONCE AGAIN!!
