The government does the post office, DMV, and tax collecting, all abject failures. The bigger the government, the smaller the citizen. Government should never assume the risk for businesses. That's what gave us Solyndra and the other failures that we, the bill payers have had to fund. The markets do the best as arbiters of which ones should survive and which should fail. Not every business should survive and the government is the LAST entity to decide who succeeds and who doesn't.
