So it seems that we aren’t going to have a second Great Depression after all. What saved us? The answer, basically, is Big Government.How totally disgusting!!!
Just to be clear: the economic situation remains terrible, indeed worse than almost anyone thought possible not long ago. The nation has lost 6.7 million jobs since the recession began. Once you take into account the need to find employment for a growing working-age population, we’re probably around nine million jobs short of where we should be.
All in all, then, the government has played a crucial stabilizing role in this economic crisis. Ronald Reagan was wrong: sometimes the private sector is the problem, and government is the solution.

It's tantamount to saying that the RED Socialist WarStuff were an acceptable means by which to go to war! Rather than ending the HORROR of BigGovernment and allowing the FreeDome of the Free Market to give america all the war that it will ever need!!!
Clearly the Department of Homeland Moral Purity should arrest such Defeatist Rumour Mongers!!!
