Message Memo

Reframing the “Bailout”


Author: Anne Kim, Matt Bennett and Jim Kessler
In The Middle Class Program

Abstract

This memo offers our advice on what progressives must do to reframe the debate, take proper credit for their overhaul of the Bush proposal, and address public outrage.

Description

Congress has little choice but to act on a rescue package for the nation’s financial industry. But Americans are angry and confused. Progressives must be clear what this week’s fight was about and where we ended up. President Bush proposed a $700 billion handout to Wall Street; progressives said no and instead crafted a loan that will keep the economy moving and be repaid to taxpayers.
