Norquist’s Bailout Plan
Grover Norquist has applied for a $700 billion subsidy from the Treasury. His appeal reads, in part:
I have a plan for this $700 billion which should be just what’s needed to get the American economy going. Since the money came from the taxpayers in the first place, I propose giving it back to them.
The rest is less amusing but probably as likely to get the economy back on its feet as giving money to incompetent auto executives or financial execs.
