Shorter David Brooks:
Billionaires, defense contractors and oil and tobacco companies paid to elect Reagan and then Bush. They cut taxes and massively increased military spending. Therefore people can’t be trusted with democracy and we have to cut the things government does for We, the People.
Except he left out the part about Reagan and Bush and where this huge budget deficit came from.
And he’s sneaky. He says governments made promises they can’t afford to fulfill so we have to cut back. He doesn’t mention that the reason we can’t afford to fulfill them is low taxes for the rich, government favors to billionaires and giant companies, and the huge military budget.
