Different Ideologies #2
Senator John Kerry was named “Porker of the Month” by Citizens Against Government Waste.
It provides another illustration of the “ideology” of the Left – though they claim to have no ideology.
“I have heard a lot of talk about we ought to do a tax cut…If you put a tax cut into the hands of either a business or an individual today, there is no guarantee they are going to invest their money…in the United States. They are free to go to invest anywhere they want, if they choose to invest…The fact is none of those people are guaranteed to invest that money in any of the new projects that we are. So government, yes government, has the ability to be able to make a decision that the private sector won’t necessarily make today.” (emphasis added)
— Senator Kerry, Feb. 6th, Senate Floor during Stimulus Bill debate.
I am glad that I have an “ideology” that believes that individuals will make better decisions than an incompetent Big Government. The Left’s “ideology” seems rather loony to me.
