Do yourself, your children, and your children’s children a huge favor and don’t let Congress fork over more than $1 trillion to Wall St. without getting anything in return. Sign this petition and let the congressional leadership know that you demand we get something for all that money, something like an equity stake in any beneficiary of the bailout (aka “warrants”), something like cancellation of golden parachutes, something like actual regulation. Glass-Steagall, anyone?
If you don’t know what exactly is being proposed, take a look at the New York Times today for a brief primer.
