Too many politicians, including those claiming to be conservatives, try to impress taxpayers with the increased activity of government. Conservative activist Chuck Ellis recently commented on the big-spending ways of his local government officials, but the same could be said of lawmakers up and down the political food chain.
So, Chuck, is big-spending by a politician a note-worthy accomplishment?
“That certainly would be true if you were a mouse given a free reign in a cheese factory, an alcoholic that owned a distillery, a politician that gave absolutely no financial regard to the wishes of his constituents, or a thief with a key to everyone’s personal savings account. Excuse me, did I repeated myself there in the end?”
