Just thought I'd point out that the bill just passed in Congress, for which Bush lobbied heavily and which is his "solution" to our economic woes, is a guarantee to bail-out insurance companies if they sustain significant losses due to terrorism.

I assume the idealists will claim this is different and justifiable, because true believers always find ways to explain away inconsistencies in their belief systems, rather than admit that their belief system is imperfect to begin with.

It amazes me that the party the runs on small government and free markets is never taken to task for things like this, steel tariffs and farm subsidies.
