President Bush and President Elect Obama Call on Congress to Immediately Pass Ski Industry Bailout

Senior Whitehouse leaders have confirmed that President Bush is in talks with Congressional leaders to pass an economic stimulus package that includes money for snowmaking, hotel improvements, and ski subsidies to help bail out an industry stung hard by the recession.

"We cannot allow the Vails of the world to go belly up like American Ski Co did. Too many jobs are at stake and there are important national security interests. If these resorts close, not only will our national pride suffer by losing highly coveted Olympic medals, but all of the supporting industries like the Front Range Marijuana industry will be affected," Obama said in agreement with the bipartisan legislation.

I swear, I kid you not, this is the crap that we are hearing every day. Why not bail out my industry? Why stop at banks and car companies? Give some money to Vail and make season passes cheaper. Prop up my condo prices so that I don't bleed out my ass every year as I watch prices tumble.

I want some hope and change. =)
