Where's OUR Bailout??????
The need for the Financial Empowerment Opportunity Fair
In 2007 the bottom began to noticeably fall out of the real estate market and in 2008 the stock market crumbled taking the futures of hundreds of thousands of hardworking American families. From that to 2009 the country has slid into a full blown recession. As we all know, recession is a word everyone refuses to say and hates to hear it even more.
With the recession thousands upon thousands of jobs were lost, millions of hard working families have gone into foreclosure, retirees lost their life’s savings and across the country we begin to seew more and more “going out of business” signs hanging on businesses that have faithfully supported many families for years. We, as a country have been left wondering what was going to happen next. We watch the news day after day to hear that the government was giving “TARP” and “bail out” money to various lending institutions.
But where is the bail out for those that have sacrificed and poured their sweat, blood and tears into building a comfortable future?
Where is the bail out for those that are working double time to keep up with the rising gas, electric, heating and grocery costs, but can still never get ends to meet?
Word of Mouth Events & Planning
Following excerpt taken from the Yahoo News article Obama slammed for neglecting jobs crisis by: Zachary Roth, Wed. Jan 26, 2011
“That's how CNN's Wolf Blitzer summed up last night's State of the Union address moments after it ended. But not everyone agrees. Yes, President Obama pushed for an array of investments in infrastructure, education, and innovation -- all of which, he argued, are crucial to long-term growth and competitiveness. But he offered very few concrete ideas to alleviate the immediate jobs crisis that's at the front of many Americans' minds. With unemployment at 9.4 percent, under-employment also sky-high, and economic growth lagging, some backers of the president would like to see more focus on job creation. And even while acknowledging that Obama's hands are tied by the Republican Congress, they're responding to the speech with frustration.
In short, President Obama spoke last night about "winning the future." But some are asking: What about the present?”
Here is the opportunity to bail ourselves out!
