"We do not support government bailouts of private institutions. Government interference in the markets exacerbates problems in the marketplace and causes the free market to take longer to correct itself."
You may be wondering where this little gem comes from. I am sure McCain can tell you. It's his party's platform that that was just passed at the very convention where he accepted the nomination to be the Republicans' presidential candidate. So the Republicans are on record as being opposed to government bailouts, but who is telling us that this bailout is absolutely necessary. You read the same papers I do, it's Bush and McCain.
