That would be one way to put it, anyway. How else to explain a company the size and importance of Bear Stearns needing a federal bailout? And how long are we going to listen to the same folks who decry ideas like welfare and national health care turn around and give a boost to a huge business which by their own ideology should have been allowed to go bankrupt?
Such are the lies of the Neocons and for that matter the Neoliberals, currently waiting in the wings to swoop back in via Hillary or Barack. Their talk of government-free “market” solutions to the world is patent nonsense, and none believe it less than they themselves. And they deserve to be called out at every turn.
