 … We cannot make the losses that our financial institutions are facing go away. Someone must take those losses. We can either let the people who made bad decisions bear the consequences of their actions, or we can spread that pain to others. And that is exactly what Secretary Paulson proposes to do – take Wall Street’s pain and spread it to the taxpayers. ... Congress owes it to the American people to slow down and think this through. We need to know that whatever we do is going to fix the problem, protect the taxpayers, not reward those who made bad decisions, and make sure this does not happen again. But we can not do that in one week as we are all trying to rush home. Congress needs to take this seriously and stay here until we find the right solution, not just throw 700 billion dollars at Wall Street as we walk out the door.
Now, Mr. President, before I yield the floor, I ask unanimous consent that the two letters I mentioned from economists opposing the bill, along with an article from the New York Times from 1999 about the Clinton Administration pushing Fannie Mae and Freddie Mac into risky loans, be printed in the record following my remarks.
I yield the floor.
FYI
Remembering 9-11 was a good thing, now remember these innocent victims too. The Iraqis that we have murdered via our tax dollars.  Put yourself in their shoes too as well those that lost loved ones on 9-11.  If you do this for me you will see a great sadness among humanity.  Let us put it to an end, for it is senseless and humanistically degrading to the collective mind of man.  Number Of Iraqis Slaughtered Since The US Invaded Iraq "1,252,595"

Now I ask you why/ how/ when/ did it sink in, this horrible predicament we are in and who is truly responsible
When truth sinks in and you cast your ballot; fire them, all of them.

"God forbid we should ever be twenty years without such a rebellion. The people cannot be all, and always, well informed. The part which is wrong will be discontented, in proportion to the importance of the facts they misconceive. If they remain quiet under such misconceptions, it is lethargy, the forerunner of death to the public liberty. … And what country can preserve its liberties, if it’s rulers are not warned from time to time, that this people preserve the spirit of resistance? Let them take arms.": Thomas Jefferson (1743-1826), US Founding Father, drafted the Declaration of Independence, 3rd US President – Source: November 13, 1787, letter to William S. Smith, quoted in Padover’s Jefferson On Democracy
