|OurFuture.org, the official web site for the Campaign to Save America's Future, recently posted a pro-bailout piece by Leo Gerard, a man with apprently no past or current interests (time to fill in your profile, Mr. Gerard). It's a great read regardless of your feelings towards the bailout:|
Congress cannot let the Jeep die in bankruptcy. Congress must not fail the U.S. auto industry. Doing so would be abandoning the core of the American economy — manufacturing. America is not built on Wall Street’s credit default swaps and collateralized debt obligations. Its wealth and culture are built on and built by middle class workers who construct actual products like steel beams, tires and Jeeps, who operate and repair machines that pull oil and coal out of the ground, who log trees and man the mills that convert them into paper.

According to the web site, the Campaign to Save America's Future is:
The Campaign for America’s Future is the strategy center for the progressive movement. Our goal is to forge the enduring progressive majority needed to realize the America of shared prosperity and equal opportunity that our country was meant to be.
What do you think - does Mr. Gerard's arguments change your opinion on the bailout?
