CITIZENS STAND AGAINST BAILOUTS WITH PETITION AND INTERNET SITE
EndBailouts.org established 24 hours after bailout plan was announced
A group of outraged American businesspeople and academics from Arizona, New York, and California are taking a stand against the proposed $1 trillion plan to use taxpayer dollars to absorb bad debts from private corporations.
EndBailouts.org, the volunteer advocacy group they formed 24 hours after the announcement from Treasury Secretary Henry Paulson, has launched an online resource and petition as a means to give a voice and support to Americans who oppose the bailout plan.
“Don’t give our children more debt and our creditors more power over us,” says Stacy Seger, an Arizona schoolteacher who helped launch the movement. “Don’t be afraid to speak out against these unprecedented government moves.”
The group circulates the petition online and on foot, planning to deliver it in person to Congress.Â Public demonstrations are planned to draw more people to the issue.Â EndBailouts.org is reaching out to combine efforts other taxpayer advocacy groups, and will provide information to taxpayers through online and other media channels.
