If we the taxpayers and of course the future generation of taxpayers are gonna bail out the financial markets, why shoud we not be entitled to representaion on the boards of companies helped/saved? Why should we not be allowed some areas in which decisions can be vetoed? On the one hand do we not have socialism, and on the other do we not have the rape of the taxpayer to the advantage of the already wealthy? And yes I know it is to the benefit of the economy and therefore all of us not to have more recession/depression. But which "class" benefits more? And who does the middle class really have to represent their interests?
