United States of Corporations
Here's a letter to the editor to the San Francisco Chronicle ... printed in today's paper:
Editor - I can't believe the Senate supported this horrendous bailout of large companies.
Small business is the engine that runs the American economy, and they bail out the large corporations? What kind of insanity is that?
In an economy when our future has been hocked by President Bush, the Senate just sentenced us to living with his mistakes for the next 20 years. How can they justify that? I'm guessing it's because the companies they are bailing out are the major contributors to their campaigns. Democracy is dead in the United States of Corporations.
