I'm mostly a "limited government conservative," yet can't quite grasp multi-million dollar "bonuses" for the fat cats at the top of the government housing agencies...

Cut the banks a sweet deal, so they can hoard cash and not lend it to small businesses, who then cannot hire because they cannot expand. Then levy from those who have it and distribute it to those who don't and then when they spend it, tax it again. Then give that to the banks again in the form of incentives, so they can flood the market with shadow inventory foreclosures and stifle the new growth the government said we had going. Then apologize to the fat cats for messing with them and ask for campaign contributions, so all the awesome politicians can get re-elected... and bend over, so they can do it to us again! Perfect!
