Bush Insures Airlines with Taxpayer Money

President Bush issued an executive order providing insurance or reinsurance for air carriers. He did so with taxpayers money. Did he require airlines to drop fuel surcharges or baggage handling fees? Nope.

Once again, George W. helps corporations with public money with no strings attached. What's the bill, President Bush? How much will this largess cost taxpayers?
