Mohler: Our Government Spending-and What It Reveals


Our government spending is way up—and everyone is seemingly fine with it.

A recent headline at the New York Times captured it well: “A Giant Deficit, Once Dreaded, Is Now Desired.” Historically, of course, we’ve had a long-standing argument in American politics about debt, the deficit, and government spending.

But now, all those old rules seem to be completely out the door.

On both sides of the political aisle, we have politicians making arguments they wouldn’t have believed they could have gotten away with just eight weeks ago. Republicans don’t sound like Republicans, and some of the Democrats sound like the kind of Democrat that other Democrats would have run from just weeks ago.

We need to be alerted to the danger of debt—a debt that future generations will have to repay.

Our economic decisions reveal our morality, our culture, our priorities … these decisions eventually reveal who we are.

Hugh Hewitt: Trump’s Counterattack and the Prospects for Recovery

President Trump continues to lead an effective counterattack against the coronavirus pandemic. The economic ruin is vast—but a V-shaped recovery seems possible if congressional Democrats will move as quickly as Trump has.

Small businesses and not-for-profits have been clamoring for replenishment of the Paycheck Protection Program. By blocking additional funding over this past weekend, House Speaker Pelosi and Senate Minority Leader Schumer forfeited their right to be taken seriously as tribunes for middle class or blue-collar workers.

The Democratic blue bubble is thick, and the air within it turns out to be a heck of a drug. Cable TV talking heads and left-wing Twitter seem to believe with deep conviction that COVID-19’s human carnage and the economic ruin will be blamed on the President.

But the American people see an administration on the offensive, determined to beat the virus and restart the U.S. economy as soon as it is safe to do so.

Dan Proft: “Yes” to the Goodies. “No” to the Gulags.

Big government Democrat politicians are happy to be puppets of corporate interests so long as the strings don’t show. They need rhetorical deniability for the campaign trail.

Similarly, Democrat primary voters generally embrace socialism by any other name so long as you don’t lay bare the repressive implications. They too need rhetorical deniability so they may continue to tell themselves they are the true heirs of American values or “the thing,” as Joe Biden affectionately terms it.

Bernie Sanders flamed out on Super Tuesday because he couldn’t keep the revolutionary in him under wraps on 60 Minutes two weeks earlier.

Rather than sticking to his fairy tale of socialism as harmonious, Nordic-style communal living, Sanders let his true self show in the form of cringe-worthy praise for Fidel Castro’s literacy program in communist Cuba.

Democrat primary voters came to Bernie Sanders for the “free” goodies but they couldn’t stay for the gulags.
