Only to bureaucrats can the idea occur that establishing new offices, promulgating new decrees, and increasing the number of government employees alone can be described as positive and beneficial measures. -- Ludwig von Mises

“Thank you Massachusetts”

Posted by Dan Barrett - February 18, 2010

Citing Barack Obama’s downhill direction in the polls, Mitt Romney spoke at CPAC of the “4 million Americans who lost their jobs last year and millions more who stopped looking for work.” He cited how pillars of business, such as Bill Gates, Steve Jobs, and Sam Walton, shaped their enterprises and in so doing, shaped our nation. Capitalism has lifted billions out of poverty but President Obama and fellow “liberals are convinced government knows better than people [do].” “He (Obama) scared employers so jobs were scare.” Romney went on a timeline of the President’s accomplishments, ranging from Obamacare’s transparency conflict to where Democrats began saying no to his agenda of tax and spend. He countered the points with a simple solution: Simplify and lower taxes while freeing trade.
