Sen. Bernie Sanders has written a great article called The Middle Class Must Not Be Forced to Bail Out Wall Street Greed that explains what American taxpayers have a right to expect from a bailout plan. He has great suggestions as to what the bailout package should include to protect the average American and to help taxpayers recoup the money invested by the government in the bailout.
The best line is at the end:
"These are the last days of the Bush administration, the most dishonest and incompetent in modern American history. It is imperative that, at this important moment, Congress stand up for the middle class and for fiscal integrity. The future of our country is at stake."
