Not only is our rate of spending on entitlements -- like Medicare and Social Security -- unsustainable, but we have also increased so-called discretionary spending at an unprecedented rate. Now that the Democrats are in charge in Congress, maybe we Republicans can rediscover our roots in limited government. The free market is the most efficient means of allocating capital and human resources. The recent bailouts (auto bailout, AIG bailout, Wall Street bailout) are inconsistent with this principle. Not only are we heaping mounds of debt on future generations but, by inserting government so deeply into the private sector, we are making future economic growth far more difficult.
