Here's Obama and McCain's joint statement on the housing panic

Joint Statement of Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain

The following is a joint statement from Senator Barack Obama and Senator John McCain on the current economic crisis:


The American people are facing a moment of economic crisis. No matter how this began, we all have a responsibility to work through it and restore confidence in our economy. The jobs, savings, and prosperity of the American people are at stake.

“Now is a time to come together – Democrats and Republicans – in a spirit of cooperation for the sake of the American people. The plan that has been submitted to Congress by the Bush Administration is flawed, but the effort to protect the American economy must not fail.

This is a time to rise above politics for the good of the country. We cannot risk an economic catastrophe. Now is our chance to come together to prove that Washington is once again capable of leading this country.

It is time for Democrats and Republicans to come together, to set aside their differences, and, on behalf of the American people, tell Hank Paulson to go blow himself.

Economic catastrophe: bring it. Here's what I have to look forward to under the current System:

1. 20 more years of 9-5. I mostly like job, but this collapse sounds like a great chance for a year off. We weren't meant to spend 40 years hunched over a damn computer.
2. That "savings" from the first 20 years? It was in mutual funds, now proven to be a farce.
3. Still won't be able to afford a nice house, only now I no longer want to be saddled with one.

The housing porn in the Sunday supplements, magazines, and t.v.? Indeed, a fantasy world that does not exist.

The System is broken. Screw it. Nationalize everything.

Right. It is pretty darn clear already that Washington is incapable.

It's AMAZING that the democrats are going to fall for this spend-and-debt, poor-hating, rich-loving "conservative" bullshit, AGAIN.

4 years from now the republican candidates are going to be saying, ya, but you voted for the bailout! Just like they now say, ya, but you voted for the war!

Even the ones who tried to stop the bailout initially, will be called "flip-floppers."
