Yesterday, Mary Jo Kilroy tweeted the following:
If I read this right, Kilroy doesn't believe taxpayers should pay for screw-ups made by private companies that mess up.
So why did she support efforts by the government to buy shares of GM in light of their self-destructive business model?
Kilroy doesn't get it.
It's not the job of hardworking taxpayers to pay for the mistakes of private industry. In a capitalist society, it's ok to let a company fail. It's good for them. If there is a demand for the type of goods they produce, someone else will pick up the slack. That's how it works.
Be consistent, Congresswoman Kilroy.
