    Love the “All-Powerful Bicycle Lobby” article!

    But they forgot to mention the multi-billion dollar bicycle companies with armies of lobbyists so powerful that they managed to persuade the US government to sink billions of dollars into their failing and bankrupt companies. Why those bicycle lobbyists even persuaded the US government to buy ownership shares of their failing and bankrupt bicycle companies!

    OOPPsss… sorry… my bad. That was actually car companies. Does the US government still own a big chunk of GM?
