Money wasted on big businesses

Our government wants to spend $825 billion in taxpayers’ money to “jump start” our lagging economy.

I could fill three pages of this paper with stuff I have learned recently about this “bailout, jump start, job creating” plan our Congress and President Obama are trying to force down our collective throats.

Mostly what I have learned is our own government, our elected officials, will be pushing us ever closer to the edge of bankruptcy if it passes this economic plan as it is written.

I have my own economic proposal. Let’s give the money to our local businesses.
