I'm a single guy. I make an honest living. And I live in an apartment, primarily because I'm afraid of getting into a housing situation that I can't afford. It's a big commitment, and one I don't take lightly.
So why on earth should I have to pay taxes to help bail out those people who didn't take the same care that I did?
I've denied myself one of the most basic aspects of the American dream--one's own house--to avoid overreaching and making a costly financial mistake, and now with the administration's decision to bail out homeowners, many of whom spent beyond their means, I find myself literally paying for someone else's.
