I completely agree with you. This bailout should never pass.

I also want to thank Senator Shelby for informing the public of the general consensus by economists who oppose this the $700 billion massive theft of taxpayers' money to bail out Wall Street financial gangsters. Shelby's opposition gives Americans hope that not all of our elected officials are Corporate shills. The PEOPLE of America are with you, Senator Shelby.

This economic decline was completely predictable. Many are surprised it didn't occur sooner. Personally, I thought the fall would occur 2-3 years ago. But the Corporate financial media managed to propagandize the American public into thinking all was well. Now it has progressed to the point where they can't cover it up any longer.

Home prices skyrocketed without there being any increase in the income of Americans to support them. The only thing driving them upward was easy credit and irresponsible lending. Demand was created by increasing borrowing ability, not increasing income. This scam was self-perpetuating, with financial institutions loaning still more money as they were able to dump their loans on irresponsible investors (in the form of Mortgage-Backed Securities), thus replenishing their lending capital, to make still more loans to uncreditworthy home-buyers.

And now the confidence game has ended. The true value of the overpriced Mortgage-Backed Securities (MBSs) has become apparent. The housing collateral supporting MBSs has dropped significantly in value, reducing the true market price of the MBSs as well. Since the holders of the MBSs refuse to sell them for the current *real* market price, they've been unable to replenish capital, and have stopped lending as a result.

The lending institutions and securities holders refuse to accept ANY losses on their devaluing securities, and instead have come crying to Uncles Ben and Henry, begging them to pick taxpayers' pockets to keep them from realizing anything more than minuscule losses.

There is NO emergency for taxpayers or main street. The "emergency" is that rich investors and bankers may lose a whole lot of money, unless taxpayers are robbed to bail them out.

This situation has been building for years. There is no emergency. The only real "emergency" is that a massive Corporate giveaway might not be engineered before Congress recesses, or before there is a new administration.

This bailout should be blocked. $1.8 trillion of taxpayers' money should not be handed over to Wall Street based on some alleged "emergency" — one that has not been debated by Congress, or even explained. The people of the United States deserve a 1.8 trillion-dollar explanation BEFORE they're forced to pony up $1.8 trillion to fund a pseudo-emergency bailout plan.

I've submitted a poll on Digg, asking the question:
