Comments: Look at Old Man Potter Buffett...

And people are surprised when I tell them that big business generally likes big government. It helps cut down on the competition (little companies don't have big lobbying budgets) and if a business can use its government contacts to get "too big to fail", it can take greater risks while relying on taxpayer money to bail them out for bad decisions.
