Welcome to Socialism, Republican Style

According to The Washington Post, the U.S. government is dramatically escalating its response to the financial crisis by planning to invest $250 billion in the country’s banks, forcing nine of the largest to accept a Treasury stake in what amounts to a partial nationalization. And people call Obama the socialist for wanting a national healthcare system. So it’s socialism to say I have to pay the government taxes to help me stay healthy, but it’s capitalism to pay for them to reinvest in the same financial institutions that ripped me off? I think every American – conservatives especially – should be asking WTF?
