Just as tobacco companies are to blame for giving people cancer, then credit card companies must also be held responsible for putting people in debt. Instead of providing bailouts for huge corporations that fill his campaign coffers, "compassionate conservative" Bush should try bailing the average working family out of debt for a change. Instead of tax cuts for the wealthiest 1%, every American who finds himself in staggering credit card debt should get a check from Uncle Sam to dig him out of the hole. It should be easier, not harder to declare bankruptcy. So easy, in fact, that you can actually declare it while you're shopping at Sam Goody.
