I’ve spent some hours sitting down with Jeb Hensarling at his Dallas home, and he’s one of the good ones on economics. The $700 billion bailout has had its EPIC FAIL (woo hoo!) moment, but before it went to vote, he put it perfectly.
Republican Jeb Hensarling of Texas, a leading conservative, said the bill puts the country “on the slippery slope to socialism. If you lose your ability to fail, soon you will lose your ability to succeed.”
