A Letter From John Sweeney To The Senate

Ripped from Working Life, by Jonathan Tasini

I've just been given a letter that John Sweeney is sending today to every Senator. Here it it is.

It makes all the right points, with this being the key nut graf:

It proposes a grant of unlimited authority to the Bush Administration to spend $700 billion of the public's money to prop up whomever they wish on Wall Street, without any rules or independent oversight. It does nothing for families facing foreclosure or for working people hit hard by the economy, and it does nothing to hold those who caused this crisis accountable.

Good on Sweeney.

I would just hope, now, that we also move to what I've been suggesting for the past couple of days--a show of massive force in the streets.
