As Obama keeps pushing his (non) jobs bill that looks like another stimulus package, I’m tired of hearing that the bailouts worked. One of the amazing non-stories in the country is that when the bailouts occurred, what the government was doing was taking those companies and their employees who were totally solvant (ie Ford, Chrysler, etc) and rewarding their achievement by having their competitor bailed out (GM). If there has ever been unfair competition in this country, it was then. Those companies competed unsuccessfully, and then were given government money so they could produce again. This is pure hypocrisy — and practically discrimination — toward those successful companies.
