Inquiring minds are reading this press release by Senator Bunning who declares “The Free Market Is Dead“
Friday, September 19, 2008
U.S. Senator Jim Bunning today issued the following statement regarding the Treasury Department’s bailout of Wall Street.
“Instead of celebrating the Fourth of July next year Americans will be celebrating Bastille Day; the free market for all intents and purposes is dead in America,” said Bunning. “The action proposed today by the Treasury Department will take away the free market and institute socialism in America. The American taxpayer has been mislead throughout this economic crisis. The government on all fronts has failed the American people miserably.
“My great grandchildren will be saddled with the estimated $1 trillion debt left in the wake of this proposal. We have gotten to this point because nobody has been minding the store. Both Secretary Paulson and Chairman Bernanke should be held accountable for their inaction – and now because of that inaction – the American taxpayer is left with bill.
“We must take care of Main Street. Small businesses in Ashland, Bowling Green, and Paducah are hurting because of high taxes, and energy costs. Those small businesses are the economic engines that fuel our economy. I hope in the closing days of this Congress we can pass legislation to help those good people on Main Street rather than helping the power brokers on Wall Street.”
I am hoping that Bunning will stand up to Paulson’s $700 billion taxpayer bailout of Wall Street and conduct a filibuster of the proposed bill. Only a handful of senators recognize what is really happening. Jim Bunning is one of them.
