A growing chorus of Democratic loyalists argue their party is losing the messaging battle over spending by failing to put a human face on cuts proposed by the GOP.
How about the human beings that have to work to pay for this spending? Taking their money and giving it to others makes the former less well-off. And it has added up over all these years to the fiscal mess we have now. The charade is now exposed. Politicians take from one group and gives it to another and call it an accomplishment. This cycle may create “economic activity” but that does not mean it is producing anything of value. It simply means a positive effect is registered by the way government fiscal policy is accounted for. It’s another way of cooking the books.
