No company should receive government IE tax payer aid period.
Yet many of the corporations that are deemed "too big to fail" got to that size due to government-approved mergers and acquisitions.

How so? Is this where we hear the boilerplate mantra about how the consumer wields all the power?

Yes, I believe it.
Do you also support employers requiring that employees purchase exclusively from a company store?

And then to invoke the "nanny state"? How ideological can you get in one statement? Nanny state implies overbearing or excessive government assistance; assistance to a legitimately starving person is excessive?

Is this a libertarian syndrome? The absolute steadfast refusal to see the real world and preference for overly-simplified examples. And then to have the audacity to be all, "well, I'D do it!" when we all know damn well you wouldn't.
