Jim Martin has been pounding Saxby Chambliss for his support of the $700 billion bailout bill. However, Martin didn’t oppose the bailout because he supported a free market solution to the problem, he’s opposed it because it didn’t contain enough big government for him:
“Obviously something needed to be done,” the former state representative said. “… My concern is that we didn’t go far enough, not that we didn’t need to do something, but that the job wasn’t completed.”
Martin argued – as he has previously – that the bill should have cracked down on “predatory lending” and other dubious financial dealings. (Virginia Senator Jim) Webb said that, although he voted for the bill, he had similar qualms.
