Powerline (yes, I will click and read any interesting looking link) on scandal-palooza:
There are two valid takeaways from the IRS scandal. First, it confirms that big government, whose power Obama is bent on expanding, cannot be trusted to behave properly.
These days, I am really having trouble processing what makes something in the government “big government”, or just “government”. Can you collect revenue from 300 million people and a bazillion businesses without that mechanism being, well… big?
And by the way, who have we put in the White House lately who hasn’t tried to expand the power of big government? Hoover?
(DO NOT SAY REAGAN THAT IS HOOEY AND YOU KNOW IT.)
