BLAGOJEVICH Detroit and Wall Street

The imbalance in the treatment between Wall Street and the UAW and car companies is now being referenced in a few places
I heard Mark Shields go to town on the bashing of blue collar workers while the white collar Wall Street execs continue to do very well on last Friday’s Inside Washington.  He even doubts that they are still the party of the workers.

Buddies of mine and I have long given up hope on either party representing the interests of workers, who are working two and three jobs and still taking out thousands of dollars in credit card debt to attempt to live like they did years ago (middle class).

    Workers? You mean unionized labor?
    Most Americans work. Yes, we can make cynical commentary of whether or not our co-workers work, but I figure working Americans have other political interests other than keeping their employers afloat.
    Also, the bailout, wasn’t that sold as a big one shot deal to help keep people in their homes and save the economy? Instead it morphed into a gimmie monster, with the auto industry being the latest in the gimmie line. I’m waiting for agri-business to jump in the line because we need food, and we have to keep our food supply safe, blah, blah, blah.
