Disaster recovery, lately a growth industry, is no argument for making government larger (Commentary)
This is a golden age for liberals. Having re-elected President Obama and regained the Senate, progressives have again declared their intellectual superiority. Everywhere they look they find support for progressive ideology and disdain for the conservative view. Even the nightmare of Hurricane Sandy is cited as vindication of the idea that federal government power should grow. The federal government is too big. It is mired in ever increasing debt. Our government borrows and prints money to give more things to more people. This is a mistake and, unless checked, will lead to catastrophe.
