Congress hopes to pass the $700 Billion bailout bill by Friday, according to an article in Bloomberg.
In case you haven’t heard, the bill would not only stick up American taxpayers for an additional $700 billion, but would literally give Paulson and the government fascist powers.
Don’t believe me?
Well, as the Bloomberg article notes: “The bill would bar courts from reviewing actions taken under its authority.”
Bloomberg includes the following quotes by people who understand the significance of the bill:
It sounds like Paulson is asking to be a financial dictator, for a limited period of time,” said historian John Steele Gordon . . . .
The Bush administration seeks “dictatorial power unreviewable by the third branch of government, the courts, to try to resolve the crisis,” said Frank Razzano, a former assistant chief trial attorney at the Securities and Exchange Commission now at Pepper Hamilton LLP in Washington. “We are taking a huge leap of faith.”
This power grab is so serious that investigative reporter Larisa Alexandrovna calls it “the final stages of the coup“.
We have days to stop this bill. March on Congress. Educate and motivate everyone around you. Do everything you can to prevent this disaster before it is too late.
