What? Less Government?
Many Democrats see all progress as requiring more government and more regulations. Total government spending in the USA is about 40 percent of GDP. The US now has a $20 trillion national debt.
The populists correctly point out that the private segment creates all the wealth that the government spends. The private segment wants the Federal Government to learn to live within its allowance (no deficit spending). The liberal progressives cannot deal with having to make the hard choices of what to cut back.
