Of Mice and Men…

How is it that the White House hears the cries of several thousand of the top managers at America’s banking institutions and is ready to put taxpayer dollars to work to save those $million per year jobs but doesn’t hear the cries of the 50 million people without health insurance in the United States and refuses to even consider putting taxpayer dollars to work to solve that crisis?

How do we decide to save the bankers from losing everything and yet allow the everyday person to lose their home?

And if we halt foreclosures today, what about those who lost their homes a year ago?  6 months ago?  Yesterday?

It seems to me that if we open the door to federal bailouts of big business that we need to open that door wide enough to offer the most we reasonably can to all Americans, no?
