  •  The criminal "bust-out" model applied to the US (10+ / 0-)

    government ... I can't get it out of my mind that we experienced a Bain/criminal leveraged "bust-out" during the Bush years.

    Taxes lowered on the super-wealthy at the same time the bust-out was financed with debt and the proceeds flowed to Cheney's cronies, looting the treasury and leaving the taxpayers on the hook for the bill.
