Blame the Government Poppycock

The Right has always loved to blame “big government” for every ill the nation endures. Usually, they’re completely full of shit, and, in particular, they are extra-special wrong when they assert that the reason business – remember, sitting on nearly $2 trillion – isn’t hiring is that “government” hasn’t made things nice and safe for them (poor dears). This column in Time this week nicely debunks that – As Mr. Karabell puts it, \"poppycock.\"

    Funny, that it doesn’t count as big government when we provide huge subsidies and tax breaks to industry, only when we provide smaller amounts to humans.
