Letter to the Editor:

Bailouts rewarding all the wrong people

Why are we rewarding failure (General Motors, Chrysler), laziness (refusal to work/welfare) and bad behavior (company mismanagement/failure to pay mortgages)?

And who is financing these rewards? The ambitious, the businesses and job creators, and the people who pay their mortgages and bills, that’s who.

Penalizing success, ambition and honesty cannot be a good thing for this country’s future.
