Are you kidding me? We are bailing out police, firefighter and teachers? God bless them; I love them, and they do a hard job, but in this economy, why are there jobs any more sacred than anothers. Where were the bailouts for my companies (I was laid off twice in 9 months)? What about the plumbers, electricians, stockbrokers, realtors, mechanics, restaurant servers etc...
I don't want to see anyone laid off, but I don't think we should be picking and choosing who is to receive bailouts. Enough is enough. I am sure this is another spending bill Betty McCollum will sign on to because the president brought it forward. If Betty does vote no, I will be the first to apologize for an assumption, and will write her a note thanking her for standing up.
This is just another ploy by this administration to garner favor come November from potential voters.
