Yep. Shortsighted economic policies like codifying bailouts, forcing banks to make loans, lowering of credit standards, that sort of thing?

If there was any validity to this idea, I'm sure it would easy to find a bank CEO or lobbyist, just a single one, who complained about "being forced to make loans by Washington" prior to the meltdown?
Why has the right wing noise machine not managed to produce a single example of this occurring?

Because it's BS.
