The Free Market Isn’t Free

September 19th, 2008at 06:13pm Posted by Eli

So let me get this straight: Now the laissez-faire, personal-responsibility, the-infallible-magic-of-the-free-market-will-solve-everything Republicans want to throw a trillion dollars of taxpayer money at a massive bailout of failing financial institutions, and to ban short selling on certain stocks (and maybe even all)?

It’s not compassionate conservatism, it’s conservatism of convenience.

Also: Does Halliburton have a financial services division?
