So the Bush Administration wants to spend a trillion dollars on shoring up the economic crash. Doesn't that suck? At least we have the party of "small Government" in the White House.
Imagine if there had been some regulation on the mortgage market. It would have slowed the world market! It would have reduced profits and the growth of wealth!
It would have prevented the worst economic collapse since the great depression! (I might be speaking too soon. The market has not bottomed out yet.)
