#Dear Congress

Five years ago you agreed to bail out the big banks with public funds. It was a remarkable feat of transfer of corporate loss to public loss minus the lofty profits. Call it an act of congress. No, call it a great act of congress.  

Lacking any acts of congress this week, let alone a great one, maybe the big banks could throw a bailout to the 800,000 furloughed federal employees while you sort things out?

I think it would mean a lot to the people, not only to those federal servants and their families, but also to those veterans traveling from afar to remember their fellow fallen men and to those thousands visiting our country’s iconic (now increasingly ironic) symbol of Liberty.  Thanks.

Sincerely,
