VIDEO: A behemoth airline merger

Marketplace Staff Sep 17, 2010

Airlines are merging helter skelter
Northwest got bought out by Delter
America West and US Air.
TWA’s no longer there.
Today it just might be decided:
Will Continental fly United?
Soon there’ll be just one airline around
and they’ll charge you a fee IF you want to sit

Extend the tax cuts?
Yes, but which?
Everybody? Just the rich?
Tea Partiers say cut ’em all
But they might cut the GOP this fall.

Health care opponents are showing endurance –
You can’t make me buy insurance!

Honk if you’re into Basel 3
And I’ll see you at Marketplace.org.
