On the Republican/Whig 19th Century Concept of "Internal Improvement Subsidies"

They never had the balls to call it what it truly was; corporate welfare, graft, fraud, bribery, kickbacks, patronage, crony capitalism, etc., and so, no, not only were these ball-busters amongst the most corrupt politicians in all of human history, they we also a bunch of lily-livered cowardly liars to boot.

At least railroads got people somewhere.

Hard to find anything useful from the Solyndra crony capitalism scam.
