I saw Bush on TV saying “More money spent in Washington means less money in the hands of American families and entrepreneurs; less money in the hands of risk-takers and job creators.” Read the transcript here.
What? The guy who signed the farm bill said this? Does he think that the money the government spends disappears into outer space? (And into the hands of large corporate farms.)
That comment has cost me any last bit of hope I was holding on to that the economy is going to recover. Not as long as this guy’s in the White House.
