What Big Government Can Do

On Monday morning, President Obama dropped the bloated corpse of a bizarre, $3.73 trillion budget on the steps of Capitol Hill. It is a remarkable document, in that it extends the wildly irresponsible spending and Big Government devotion of Obama’s first two years almost without hesitation, despite the historic pounding his party took in the 2010 midterm elections.

This dead-on-arrival budget, in combination with the results of the Obama spending binge to date, has but one use: it shows us what Big Government can do.

Government, for example, is indispensable in the creation of high unemployment.

Big Government is also vital in the creation of shortages.

Government is the mother of entitlement.

And, of course, only government can produce crippling levels of debt.
