Lining Up at the Public Trough

So what happens when the government starts handing out money left and right? People start lining up for a crack at the pie. A recent New York Times column describes the various lobbying factions descending on the Treasury like a pack of hungry dogs.

I bet you didn't know that the National Marine Manufacturers Association has been so hard hit by the recent economic turmoil. Their lobbyists are asking if boat financing companies can get a piece of the action to help make sure that boat dealers have sufficient credit access to keep boat showrooms full. Glad to see my tax dollars potentially addressing the crisis of less than full boat showrooms.
