I see a pattern that I think is by design and that’s in the way businesses are weakened by taxes & regulations and then “rescued” by government with bailouts, subsidies, and various programs. But then they don’t really recover when the same problems that weakened them still exist so it’s a temporary fix that actually puts burdens on other innocent businesses because there’s the taxpayer cost involved.
Green energy companies are a great example. And I wonder how many people realize that a rebate is an indirect subsidy. It’s schemes like this that keep the Tea Party alive and well but I hope we can take a long break after November cause we deserve it!
