Kolja Rudzio | The same state haggles over every bowl of soup for welfare recipients. For banks, billions appeared overnight. There must also be money for higher wages and more social services.

Doug Cupertino | The Federal Reserve System bail-out of AIG means more of the same: more diversion of working people’s tax money to speculation and Wall Street profiteering and away from working people’s welfare. Fed takeover of AIG means more of the same Wall Street control and management. Time for putting working people’s welfare first, and real, socialist change. more... 0 Comments
