I'm for banning ALL government bailouts.

Any bailout is a misappropriation of taxpayer's money.   If any congress member (or government employee) gives taxpayer money to a private business, they should be impeached, fined, and imprisoned.

Walmart and McDonald's don't need bailouts.  They need government to get out of their way.  When city councilmen bizarrely object to a Walmart being built in their neighborhood, Walmart needs to be able to ignore those idiots instead of finding some legal way to bribe them.

McDonald's didn't need a two year exemption from Obamacare, it needed no Obamacare ever.


  

Snarky no more!

All for it. You might add bailouts for farmers, opera and dance companies, Amtrak and local transit systems, local police departments and sewer/water systems, renters and homebuyers, school districts and college students, hospital patients, windmill and solar cell manufacturers, television stations, irresponsible parents, and numerous other free lunchers to the list.

All bailouts must be for me.  Not for any other person.

Aren't you poor? Bailouts for the poor seem common and popular...

But you can't hog them all to yourself lest you become rich and no longer qualify for bailouts. Cheesy

And never any bailout(s) for any other business(es) also unless they've paid their fair shares of obligatory investments insurance to Social Security Administration also.

Agreed.  And legislators should be charged with one count of armed robbery for every earmark that they vote for

No company should get any bailout ever.  Free market companies should never be forced to compete with confiscated government money.

Capitalism isn't about "companies," it's about jobs
