"Insert" Is A Polite Euphemism For It, I Guess

The Washington Post says, “Congressional Leaders Announce Breakthrough in Bailout Bill Negotiations”:

Congressional leaders and the Bush administration last night struck a historic accord to insert the government deeply into the nation’s financial markets, agreeing to spend up to $700 billion to relieve Wall Street of troubled assets backed by faltering home mortgages.

Shouldn’t that be “more deeply into the nation’s financial markets”? Especially since inserting the government deeply into the nation’s financial markets caused all the trouble in the first place.
