He and Geithner are two peas in a pod – and both have gotten rotten on the vine.

These people don’t build or create value of any sort, but they get union wages and better benefits to do little poorly.

When will they feel the ax to their interests? Who will wield it? Our government NEVER stops expanding in size and expense. There are ever louder moans and screams and wailing every time “we, the people” see the slightest slowdown in it’s growth.

Of course, what those companies do with the borrowed money is vital. Investing in new means of production can be good, investing in research and development is often better, and paying absurd salaries to the CEO and top management is bad. Right now the U.S is severely neglecting a number of areas of necessary investment. Education seems to be the first target of budget hawks around the country and is one of our most vital investments. However, in the long term our lack of investment in science is going to be our economic downfall. All of the major areas of our technology driven economic progress have their roots in government funded science. For example, the internet, e-mail and everything related grew out of DARPA (Department of Defense) projects with added contributions from academic research.
