From Steve Pearlstein at the WaPo:

Well, isn't this rich: Max Baucus of Montana and Chuck Grassley of Iowa, chairman and ranking member, respectively, of the Senate Finance Committee are suddenly in a lather that taxpayer funds might be implicated in the Federal Reserve's rescue of Bear Stearns.

Would that be the same Max Baucus and Chuck Grassley who have made careers out of protecting and enhancing the lavish system of import restrictions, price supports and other subsidies that have transformed American farming and ranching into a vast socialist enterprise? You betcha.

Whatever you want to say about the sharpies on Wall Street, they are pikers compared to Max's and Chuck's friends down on the farm when it comes to picking the pockets of taxpayers and consumers, or concocting a system in which the farmers get all the gains while the government assumes most of the risk.

Politicians have no shame.

and hence the candidate aspiring for it will have a bright future in this field. NP's are skilled to diagnose and deal with most common ailments and refer to medical professionals for more intricate diseases. The focus of a maternity nurse is on the emotional and physical well-being of both their patients. Kaplan University is another excellent option. There are also nurse practitioners who, in addition to standard nurse training, have a specialty in a specific health field.
