    Because certain law makers view it as “saving the economy” in short. Majority of them are also involved stocked wise or directly participate in said company.

    Rep Porter, what makes you think the Dem party will get a 2nd opportunity to get these things done. If history is any guide it appears your party will lose your majority in the House and possibly the Senate in 2022. While I respect the stand you have taken on many issues, your response rings hollow if not disingenuous.

    I hope judges don’t fall for this b*******. The United States used to execute charters, which means if corporations were found to be acting in ways that harm the public, their corporate charters were yanked. We should get back to that

    The irony of america and its “free market” is that there are tons of systems that make sure its not a free market and the same companies don’t die and the market doesn’t change and they can avoid destruction even if they are criminal
