Kidneys and free markets

A coalition of conservative groups in New Jersey calling themselves, appropriately enough, the "New Jersey Conservative Coalition", are blaming the recent corruption arrests on, what else, big government. According to a recent press release, "There is only one solution for the problem of government corruption, and this is to maintain a limited government based on the principles of individual responsibility, fiscal accountability, a system of values, and devotion to the Constitution and rule of law."

I guess they mean the kind of free market, limited government that gave us Rabbis selling replacement kidneys for $160,000 and Wall Street bankers making billions off of subprime mortgages.
