President-elect Obama and Congress are using the cover of economic hardship to pursue a permanent increase in the size and scope of government. This is by far the biggest debt package in the country’s history. Every dollar borrowed will have to be paid back with interest.
The Obama debt package has been proposed at $825 billion, a truly staggering number. The so-called stimulus is loaded up with a wide-ranging agenda that has nothing to do with boosting the economy. The agenda would manipulate and jeopardize the security of our energy supply, give bureaucrats greater power to make health care decisions, and force federal taxpayers to bail out overspending by state governments.
