A loaf of bread costs $1. For some, that is too expensive. The Feds agree to loan these people $1, but the bakery raises the price of a loaf of bread to $1.75. Good deal, eh? But for whom? - the buyer who spent his own $.75 AND still owes the government $1 (at a relatively high interest rate)? - the taxpayer who has to pay for all this? - the baker whose profit just skyrocketed? - the politician who can now count on the votes of both baker and buyer? Get it?
