The slippery slope
First, they bail out the financial institutions.
Now, the automakers. More here.
Next, the homebuilders are clammering for their time at the taxpayers’ trough.
Surely the airlines and other industries can’t be far behind. Isn’t corporate welfare grand?
All funded out of the hard-earned monies of ordinary citizens whose only “crime” was to pay their bills and not be connected to powerful lobbying interests in Washington, D.C. Hey, if all the ordinary citizens of America stopped paying any monies to the IRS, could we just call that the “average Joe and Josephine” bailout?
We have embarked on one heckuva slippery slope toward socialism.
