RICK CARVER (CONT’D)
Ask them when they’re spitting in your face as you walk them to the curb.
Ask the banks why they gave them an adjustable rate mortgage.
Ask the government why they lifted all regulations and turned a blind eye.
You, the Tanners, the banks, Washington and every other homeowner and investor from here to China turned my life into evictions.
I’m not an aristocrat. I wasn’t born into it.
My dad was a roofer. I grew up on construction sites watching him work his ass off until he fell from a townhouse.
A lifetime of insurance payments and they dropped him before he could buy a wheelchair but only after they got him hooked on pain killers.
Do you think I’m going to let that happen to me? Do you think America 2010 gives one damn about Carver or Nash?
America doesn’t bail out the losers. America was built by bailing out the winners.
By rigging a nation of the winners, by the winners, for the winners.
Do you go to church Nash? Do you?
Only 1 in 100 is gonna get on the Ark and every other poor soul’s going to drown.
I’m not going to drown.
