If the patient (economy) is hemorrhaging and all you do is give more transfusions without fixing the cause, the patient will die.
Fix this not by giving more money to the banks, instead give money to the taxpayers who are barely able to keep a roof over their heads. Give tax money back to the taxpayers who paid that money. Now there's an idea that makes far more sense.
These companies/organizations "in charge" have adequately demonstrated that they are incompetent thieves, and according to the "free market" religion, the free market should immediately cast them out of the gene pool. They are not only incompetent, they are also incontinent it seems with all the fewmets (dragon droppings) heading our (the ordinary people) way. It's time for them to stop defecating feces at us and start dropping golden nuggets at us.
It's the only true, long-term solution that won't bankrupt anybody or anything. Instead of putting every taxpayer in the country $64,000 further into debt, instead give every taxpayer $64,000. The measly $1,500 they gave out earlier this year was only a couple house payments for normal people, or even less - not enough for anyone to seriously catch up with all the massively increased prices for basic necessities. The rich don't like that, cause it'll create inflation, meaning that their money is worth less. Sure, it makes our money worth less too, but a few percent of $20,000 is a lot less than a few percent of a billion.
But think of this: Most people will just hand it right to the banks anyway, to help pay down mortgages that they cannot afford. Bang - We've killed two birds with one stone(!!!) - BOTH the Banking Liquidity Crisis, AND taken a major load of every struggling taxpayer. Think About It - It makes way too much sense and is even very simple to understand.
Big Corporations and Big Governement should try becoming symbiotic with us instead of being parasites on those very people who make it so they can rise to these outrageous heights. It'll be better for everybody.
