The Era of Big Government is Back (National Radio Commentary / Salem-Townhall.com) February 13, 2015

Posted by daviddavenport in Op/Eds, Radio Commentaries.

When President Obama released his record-breaking $4 trillion dollar budget recently, he basically announced to the world that the era of big government is back.

His fellow Democrat, Bill Clinton, famously proclaimed in his 1996 State of the Union message that “the ear of big government is over.”  And Ronald Reagan inaugurated his presidency in the 1980’s by pointing out that:

But Obama wants to roll the clock back even further, to Franklin Roosevelt and his New Deal, raising taxes on the rich, while increasing government spending and debt.

Apparently Obama has learned nothing from his earlier big government experiments:  failed efforts to stimulate the economy and his signature Obamacare which is rife with problems and sinking in unpopularity.

Returning to big government progressivism moves the country further in the wrong direction.

Let’s hope the Republican House and Senate will stop it.
