Times are hard now economically and we all feel the pressure. All of us in the middle income to lower income brackets are having to work harder and harder either for less or the same incomes ourselves or our parents once earned with a single job each.

Infusions of cash into their companies by both the GOP and Democrats during the first stimulus then subsequent ones helped keep their holdings and themselves safe one way or another. The rest of us have not seen the wisdom of President Bush’s TARP or subsequent stimulus efforts translate into anything except cash going out that does not come back in.
