Americans should have been given a low interest rate for 5 yrs. The government can bail out the banks but what of the every day citizen drowning in credit card debt .OPEN YOUR EYES! Its time we rtook back OUR government. Pay attention vote out these senators and congressmen who slip and slide for years getting nothing accomplished. They keep their lobyist happy but coulsd care about the average American. WE NEED A THIRD PARTY!! THe government holdsbillions in citi bank stock and now are trying to figure the best way to sell or dispose of them. Why not disperse these bonds to Americans strugleing to make their citi bank payments.IT IS TIME FOR THE OLD TO GO AND THE YOUNG WITH NEW IDEAS TO BECOME SENATORS AND CONGRESSMEN. The last generation failed . Im sure we could do better.
