Bailing out the bailout

Dear Editor:

Here we find ourselves in a real mess. Thanks, Mr. President and the Republican Party. The party who believed in small government, balanced budgets, no debt and unregulated free enterprise. Wow, didn’t work too good, did it?

So here we are with the Republicans handing over the largest government in history, largest debt in history, largest deficit in history and trillions to buy up free enterprise and create the largest public works program in history. I don’t want to forget they also left the worst president in history.

I certainly would say they have made a statement. Sad thing is, we still need them to get out of this mess. Yes, we all have to work together or we all go down together. There are no winners unless we are all winners! Think about it!
