Nationalizing health care, which represents one-sixth of the economy, has been nothing short of a disaster. The Senate will vote Tuesday to establish a permanent federal presence in housing, which represents another one-sixth of the economy.

Hailed as a "superhero" by taxpayer watchdogs, Republican Sen. Mike Crapo quietly petitioned the George W. Bush administration to award a massive loan guarantee to a wireless company that just went bankrupt, owing U.S. taxpayers more than $70 million.

"So I think that's a critical step."

And if you add the [Federal Housing Administration], 95 percent of the market is now dominated by the government," said Mr. Crapo. "If we stay where we are, we are back to a very heavy hand of the government regulating the industry and controlling, literally, the markets."
