Let’s expand the corporate welfare state. . . After all, it worked out so well for GM and Detroit. Tad DeHaven, with Cato, joined the program to discuss the way States and the Feds are trying to pick winners and losers. (They’re mostly picking losers, by the way.) ... more

Well I guess we all missed it: President Obama has gotten us out of the recession! Oh wait, but that’s not true at all. ... more
