Congressman Hensarling (R-TX) Equates Recessions With Freedom

Um, wtf?

I think Congressman Hensarling is confusing freedom with unregulated markets. When markets are allowed to run amok, volitality will increase and lives are easier to destroy (at the behest of making a few at the top very wealthy). As for the alternative Jeb, there are more than just one. It isn't just your view of corporate welfare free markets vs. communism. There are actually many ways the government can influence the economy while allowing for the buyers and sellers in the marketplace to make decisions for themselves. Though I guess it might be hard to admit that when you have to keep up the image of the "Party of No."
