No Wonder the Vote was Anti-Bush
My state of Illinois jumped 2% over last year at the same time, and I suspect it will get worse.
Having said that, I don't support the bail out of GM. Their business model is broken. I think they need to reorganize and the management needs to be fired. I hope they hire a good turnaround expert.
Instead, can't we spend money on fixing our broken health insurance system? Personally, I want better health care for what I pay, not more money to pay for health care in which the insurance companies keep acting like Peanuts' character Lucy, who keeps removing the football each time Charlie Brown goes to kick it. Insurers can't be trusted as they love being a moving target--just like the bankers who kept jacking up interest rates.
