The only way to cut government spending is to cut government

The Cato Institute is putting together a series of videos to identify government agencies that are not merely wasteful, but are also destructive to our country’s well-being.  This video, attacking the horribly misnamed Department of Education, is one of the five videos Cato has already created:

Of course, the above video brings coals to Newcastle.  Those who watch it already agree with its premise, although it’s nice to have hard facts to back up our sometimes inchoate sense of outrage.  What I would love is to see every liberal I know watching the video.  Sadly, though, I know with absolute certainty that none will dare. They are resolute in their desire to avoid contact with any information that might disrupt their New York Times world view.

    What the liberals think about these programs is irrelevant. If their elimination works and economic conditions improve, what is the other side going to argue? That we need a return to unemployment?
    I’m glad that someone is already studying how to cut the federal government in-depth. If we get a window of opportunity, it may be slim. We need to have our plans in order before The Purge ™.
