I thought we are supposed to let the "Free Market" decide!

Conservatives are always throwing that out, "Let the Free Market decide..." Let's take them at their word, I say do not bail out any of these companies, they should have kept reserves for a rainy day and not taken so many risks. To always bail them out like we did the Wall Street banks in 2008, just reinforces their careless behavior. Someone would buy up the assets of the bankrupt airlines and start a new airline. Let the current ones fail. They all just received a huge tax cut and now they need help? F'them!

They want a socialist bail out, for real? What nerve!

3. "Let the free market decide"

along with "government shouldn't be picking winners and losers". If a business is too big to fail, it's too big.

4. "We all too often have socialism for the rich and rugged free market capitalism for the poor."
