Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.

I follow you up to this point:

So again, I'm saying restate the argument for the government getting revenue from corporate gains by telling the companies that if they think they can get the insurance that they US government is offering them at a lower price in the market, they are welcome to try.

So that way it's their choice to be taxed, and the morality of the argument is changed to the favor of progressives.

You're suggesting this as a balancing-out of hypothetical bailouts -- a voluntary form of government insurance?

Be nice to America. Or we'll bring democracy to your country.
