Not so risky

Tweet [1]

From the New York Times [2]:

President Obam [3]a will push General Motors [4] into bankruptcy protection on Monday, making a risky bet that by temporarily nationalizing the onetime icon of American capitalism, he can save at least a diminished automaker that is competitive.

It's not so risky when it isn't your money. True, there's some political risk if it goes badly, but the pain will be spread across all of us while the gain, at least for now, is to his union cronies.
