And what I am going on about it is it seems you are morally outraged that a company acted in its own best interests by taking money freely offered to them by a government. And what I am saying is it is the job of lawmakers to protect their citizens best interests, it is not the job of private companies to protect the citizens best interests.

I don't care what Wiki says.
Can't someone be upset at BOTH the government AND Specsavers? At the government for poor policy and at Specsavers for benefitting from it?

It's pretty easy to find examples of where have-nots direct their anger at haves, and not just at policy makers.
