One of the most frightening things I've read. According to this article, President Obama is refusing to allow the banks to repay the taxpayer money they were lent, in order to keep control of the banks.
If it's not the case that this administration wants the government to control every aspect of the economy, as the Soviets tried to do and failed, then the President better explain immediately why the taxpayers shouldn't be paid back whenever possible for the billions we've poured into what used to be private companies.
Things like this make me believe that those who claim Obama wants a completely Soviet-style controlled economy are not fringe kooks. Certainly, he feeds the paranoia.
