    GM is still an autonomous entity. Health care regulation is not a "takeover." I'm a pilot. There's a lot of regulations I must follow. Congress just added a significant regulation regarding hiring airline pilots. This doesn't mean we have socialized air travel. words mean things.

Which means they either find a way to sweeten the deal for their members or the union's influence takes a substantial hit.

    So from the standpoint of pure rational self-interest, it makes perfect sense for some to demand additional subsidies. What's fascinating is how they're enlisting the right as unlikely allies in this little rent-seeking ploy. Pretty masterful, actually,
