Corporate Welfare

Well this has been a very interesting week in the economy.  It has seen the end of two prominent Wall Street investment banks, and the bailout of the nation’s largest insurer.  Gee wiz, tough times on wall street.  Who comes in as the savior for these corporations?  You guessed it, the United States government.

I guess you don’t qualify for welfare unless you are a very wealthy corporation which heavily leverages yourself with unsafe investments.  That’s the welfare that the Republicans support.

Hey, I wouldn’t mind a welfare check — but I guess I am not rich enough.
