Ode to the Bailout

Now that the Wise White Fathers have decided that it was a good idea to stakehorse America's stock players by marching into the casino with 1.1 trillion of our dollars it may just be time for poetry:

Ode to the Bailout

Carte blanche for every billionaire,
for corporations laissez-faire,
‘til profiteering tanks their shares;
then it’s up to each taxpayer
to double their free-market prayers
and pony up some Inc. welfare.
That’s what DC thinks is fair;
and if you don’t, well, they don’t care.

I think it is appropriate to add this from Krugman's blog;

....John McCain’s article, Better Health Care at Lower Cost for Every American, in the Sept./Oct. issue of Contingencies, the magazine of the American Academy of Actuaries. You might want to be seated before reading this.

Here’s what McCain has to say about the wonders of market-based health reform:

Opening up the health insurance market to more vigorous nationwide competition, as we have done over the last decade in banking, would provide more choices of innovative products less burdened by the worst excesses of state-based regulation.
