I realize that this site is what it is, and I’ve enjoyed every minute of it. But this is one area where, as a conservative, I have severe issues. Because something is business related, people tend to think that whatever action is being taken is completely justifiable under the broad umbrella term called “free market”. A corporation murdered someone? Must be okay, it’s a free market ya know. Or, they blame it all on government, who is to blame as well, as I’ve mentioned.
There’s nothing “free” about arbitrarily handing some businesses taxpayer money and not having the same benefit available to smaller businesses or businesses that are pre-existing in an area.
As for the health care debate, I can find plenty wrong with the HR 3200 bill without even mentioning “death panels”.
