Stimulus Spending Benefits Politicians, Not Taxpayers

It is an unusual politician who has the power and authority to give voters ice cream but won’t use that power to buy votes.

This is particularly true when voters themselves believe that ice cream is crucial for their health and welfare.

In a recent survey from Pew Research Center, 52% said they prefer “bigger government providing more services,” compared with 45% who said they prefer “smaller government providing fewer services.”

The majority of the American public have bought into the idea that government can solve their problems. When a crisis hits, like now, the first instinct of most is that government needs to step in.

So now, rather than talking about ice cream, let’s talk about a few trillion dollars in stimulus spending.

Let’s recall that these great economic results were driven by the deregulation and tax cuts enacted early in the Trump administration.

So, it’s about less government, not more.
