My bad!  I see the word "Grant" and just assume it's government.

Chase isn't the government yet guys. Give it a couple more Republican presidents and it will be.

Remember, this is the same Chase of JPMorgan Chase Fail Whale fame. The loss from that trade is up to $9 billion. Just one trade. Think about that.

How exactly do us taxpayer/consumers benefit from the government taking money from so they can give it to a business.  Let the market determine the success of a business and tell your congressperson you don't like him taking your money  just to give it to some business that may not survive no matter how much money is pumped into it.  What was that solar company that went bust even after we gave it millions?
