All factories will now be run by worker's committees, and billionaires are to be shot. Mere millionaires will be sent to gulags.

Are you sure it's not simply socialising losses and privatising profits?

I'm sure that many have taken their profits, and they are sitting safely in offshore tax havens.

Still the US taxpayers will end up owning, through the State, loss making Airlines and other businesses.

If the bank-bailout is any guide then the only thing the US taxpayers will end up owning are the debts on the loans taken out by the state to maintain profitability, dividends, and shareholder confidence of private companies. The Bill has, after all, given more money to business than to hospitals.

Makes more sense than just giving the assholes money.

We probably need a government supported carrier, though. Everybody else has one.
Yeah well that's just, like, your opinion, man.
