I've never been so proud to be from Alabama. ;) I heard this on the radio this morning:
Sen. Richard Shelby (R-AL) weiged in on NPR as to why the bailout plan as written now is a stupid idea and we should just let the market run its course.
"What about alternatives. ... Is nothing an alternative?"
Shelby: "Oh, absolutely! [Doing] nothing is always an alternative. The best disciplinarian we have is the market itself."
For a longer and more in-depth look at the situation from a similar perspective, Ron Paul gave his opinion on the proposed bailout in this audio clip from yesterday. (Thanks, Travis!)
Hopefully, Congress is listening.
