In reference to Obama’s auto industry saving strategy (specifically the warranties) Conor Clark says

All of this is private industry, avoid-the-government-type stuff. The only thing the government provides is the money. The white paper (pdf) suggests that at no stage in the process will an individual car owner have to interact with, look at, or think about anybody who works for the government.

This is supposed to be critical thinking? Mush. The source of funding does matter. See health care, military spending, and any company with an exclusive government contract.
