A friend pointed me toward an interesting radio segment that aired on local public radio KUOW today: Should the Federal Government Bailout Banks and Homeowners?
You can listen to the full segment at the link above. Here’s a short excerpt from the beginning:
It seems that most of the people that called in were against a government bailout, despite the fact that both Hilary Clinton and Barack Obama would like to spend billions to do just that. I don’t like to get too much into politics on here, but I have to wonder if the democratic candidates really have their finger on the pulse of their base when so many people from a town like Seattle call in to say that they disagree with both of them.
Anyway, the program is an interesting listen. I wish I would have known about it while it was airing and could have called in.
