ON THE STREET
The Congress passed the $700 Billion bailout bill. How has the current financial crisis affected you? What is your opinion on the bailout?
I don't think they should have passed it. Why don't they just give each of us a million dollars. And they wouldn't need the bailout.
It's all messed up. I don't see how we will get out of it if we don't pass the bill.
I think it is bull. We don't need it.

I think it is wrong, it is bad. I think it will come back to bite us. Personally, I think we are heading for a recession.
It doesn't affect us at all and the bailout won't help us at all, the lower to middle class.
As far as for banks failing, it hasn't affected us. But the economy has affected us. We are farmers and are paying out more than we are making. I don't know if the bailout is good or not.
