Big government is on the march again. On Thursday, the Senate passed a $4.5 billion childhood nutrition bill. Is there nothing that is out of the purview of President Obama and this congress? Why is this an issue for the Federal government? This is a classic matter better left to the states. Unfortunately, it is just one more example, in a seemingly endless list, of a congress without discipline. Yet another body blow to Federalism.
Is this a congress we can trust to substantially cut spending, reform entitlements, and dramatically reduce the deficit and debt? Of course not. We need strong conservatives who will stand up and fight against these feel-good spending programs that do nothing more than erode our liberty and mortgage our future prosperity.
