The Tyranny of Unintended Consequences

President Obama and the news media have attempted to create a narrative that points to a “broken” political system as the underlying cause for our economic depredations.  Yet this argument deliberately disregards the reality that the American people voted for divided government as a stopgap against unbridled government intervention into the free-enterprise system—and the unintended consequences that have exacerbated economic problems.

Obama's Shovel-Ready Fallacies

President Obama, speaking at a Chrysler plant in Toledo, attempted to highlight the successes of his bailout bonanza of the American auto-industry.  “This plant directly supports hundreds of jobs right here in Toledo.  After all, without you, who’d eat at Chet’s or Inky’s or Rudy’s?” A few days later Chet’s closed up shop and went of business.  Ouch.  Presumably, the president would surmise that the diner’s demise was a “bump in the road” on the way to recovery.

Detached from Reality

By 2020, public debt in the United States is set to reach 90 percent of GDP, a line that many economists demarcate as when accumulated debt pushes an economy to the precipice of fiscal demise.  Entitlement spending remains on autopilot and some federal agencies, with “stimulus” money included, have received 180 percent increases in spending.

Scorecard on Government Spending

Recently, President Obama reiterated the necessity for increased government “investing” in our economy.  The way the President’s argument is shaped it seems like government has been standing out of the way, back in the shadows, just waiting to emerge amidst the calamity created by an unfettered deregulated private sector.  The only way we will be competitive in the successive years, of course, is if we spend more taxpayer money on liberal pet projects and “invest” in special interest groups slobbering to indulge in the government subsidy trough.
