Opening paragraph from an article in the Milwaukee Journal Sentinel: “The U.S. government on Tuesday sued to block American Airlines and US Airways’ proposed merger to create the world’s biggest airline, saying consumers would end up paying higher fares and fees.”

Meanwhile, that same U.S. government is bending over backwards to convince us that enlarging itself (the government) via the nationalization of health care will end up costing us less.

Did I miss a memo somewhere?
