Bill Maher Slams The Right's Unwavering Faith In The Free Market: 'Big Business IS The New Big Government'

Posted: Updated:

Bill Maher closed this week's "Real Time" by poking a stick at the notion that the free market is always right. Pointing out the hypocrisy of the right's adherence to that belief, he insisted, "Big business is the new big government. It is the massive, unwieldy bureaucracy that just doesn't work."

Using the lack of real costumer service in big business as a jumping off point, Maher explained that the absence of choice due to any real government pushback on mergers has left our economy at the whim of people whose policy is to annoy you out of your money.

"That's the problem with the free market today, it's not free or much of a market," Maher noted. Watch the full clip above and let us know if you agree.

Oh, and here's a GIF of Neil deGrasse Tyson giggling at Maher's masturbation joke during the segment (you're welcome).
