Everyone thought George W. Bush grew the US Government at a staggering rate with more bureaucracy and debt. Barack Hussein Obama makes Bush look like a piker. Printing more money and buying back our own treasury bonds so that we can hire more government employees and generate more government programs makes no sense to me at all. I see no improvement in government service with the astronomical expansion of the Federal Government.
Am I near-sighted? Am I the only one who sees no cause and effect to the rabid expansion of the government under Obama?
Bigger government is certainly more expensive than smaller government, but where is the qualitative pay-off?
