Give the Money Back?
A day after the capitalists take over it was announced that 49 Wisconsin Companies (presumably led by capitalists) were going to share 13.1 million dollars in Federal Grants from the health care act. This would be the act that Ron Johnson and Paul Ryan as well as others have said they would repeal. Not only that but Ron Johnson and Scott Walker has said that government should not be in the marketplace. What is their position on these grants? Are they going to introduce legislation to get this money back? Are these companies going to do the right thing and give the money back because they believe that business should not accept government help? I want to know! This country needs to follow Capitalist theory, the people have spoken, which means that the market picks winners and losers not the government. I say that it is time to hold these businesses to what they preach. The tea party patriots talk about the constitution. There is nothing in the constitution that explicitly says that it is the duty of government to help business. The same goes for tax cuts to business, again it is government helping business. Look at Quad Graphics, $49 million in credits. Their competition didn't get a deal, it is unfair competition directed by the government. I for one will continue to point this out but I don't expect to see this anymore, we have a new administration in town.
