So the answer of course is to keep spending, throw money at everything, and see what sticks. While we can disagree with whether the bailouts should have happened or not, we surely aren't in disagreement that there is no such thing as a cut back in government, right? When did government ever contract? Answer...never. Washington is the only place where cuts in the rate of growth are considered reductions.
So let me ask you a question...is government ever too big to fail? Answer...never.
All this spending is under the disguise of economic stimulus but what do you think will happen when the "stimulus" funding ends? Will we cut back? You already know the answer. The argument will be that program x or program y is too big to fail. After all, look at all the people that will be hurt if we cancel or cut something. It will be argued that government is too big to fail.
And unfortunately many will buy into the argument.
So the only answer will be even higher taxes and even more rationing. It is a re-run movie folks and it has been played over and over again. So I repeat from my January blog..."we are so screwed."
