I am writing because the value of my home dropped from $94.000 to $88,000 this year, and I did not get a raise again and my 401K is stalled. This is all happening because apparently there is no money out there, while I read in the newspaper that Wall Street bankers are making more money than they did before the collapse. I do not know the solution but obviously their compensation needs to be tied to something other than what currently determines it. It is obscene that our system continues as before when so many people are suffering and the rest of us are stalled like me. I ask you to put reforms into place that reinforce a stable system with some sort of proportionality in the reimbursement of these executives.
