    Wrong. Tell that employer that his cost of labor is increasing tomorrow and he raises his prices today. Your paycheck is weak because you buy cheaper products and have messed up priorities. A gallon of gas in Tucson is $1.33 today. A loaf of bread, a gallon of milk, a dozen eggs....what's that cost? You have to work how long to pay for that...less than 30 minutes? How much is your mortgage payment this month vs. 10 years ago?

    They are more difficult to get, but not what I would consider "very hard"...and they should be. We just went through this process a year ago. 20% down, in the service industry with a wildly fluctuating income.

    I don't know, do I? According to this article the TARP bailout was necessary to prevent a great depression.

    Obviously some think that way, others of us don't.

    So I assume you won't ever complain on the pension or yrc site about corporations getting bailouts, and you not?

    Would of been better to divide money with the citizen's here.. bailout precedent was set with Chrysler many yrs ago.So, we did it again...lol. then, the bankers took our cash too...."help us or you will die"....do retired people get there money back from Wallstreet pummeling. ..lol.
    The mortgage company wanted 20% when we bought a few yrs ago..."ok....skin in the game"... we ended up putting 27% down.. do to some extra work...etc.
    I'm just glad America seems to lean towards a Republican candidate. !

    What's so bad about a depression, the nicest people I've ever known grew up in the depression, including my mother and father and veterans of WW2. It builds character and flushes the toilet. So what if Goldman Sachs is gone, who cares, so what if AIG is gone, who cares, so what if JPMorgan Chase is gone, who cares. They got bailed out and then those 2 fools Dodd-Frank punished the community banks for the sins of the mega-banks. We'd be better off with them gone. A depression could have been a tough lesson instead it got papered over and is still festering. Our economy is a sham.

    Depressions are a great time to get rich if you have cash.

    Hillary will play ball. These republican establishment types would rather have Hillary help line their pockets than help Trump or Cruz get elected. How's anyone going to bribe Trump? Offer him a couple hundred million, he'd laugh at them

    I don't recall any posts where I expected a bailout. I know congress isn't concerned about union retirees. Kline-Miller was rushed into law to bail out the PBGC.

    So you won't complain about corporations either, since us little guys have investments with them? I'll make a note...

    I don't know maybe the 88 million people who bought insurance from them. Or the 64,000 people that work for them.

    Again you put words in my mouth. I don't recall complaining about corporations making a profit. I complain about corporations making obscene profits and not paying taxes.

    Who cares, they can buy insurance elsewhere and 64,000 people spread all over the world can look for a new job. Saving AIG was a backdoor bailout for Goldman Sachs.

    I can't name one corporation that made an obscene profit that didn't pay taxes. Please enlighten me.
