"A power over a man's subsistence amounts to a power over his will."
The TARP theft also gave corporate franchises zombie-like power so no healthy transfer of power could occur. Domino's Pizza and the cruel American chicken industry received bailouts. General Motors used their bailout to run away from the U.S. and invest in another country. The list truly does go on and on; as more and more scandals are uncovered (see Solyndra Scandal).
Hopefully, they will come to their senses soon.
