After all these years, Democrats may finally be catching on to this limited government thing.
Not quite realizing how accurately he was describing the idea of limited government, U.S. Rep. John Yarmuth, D-Ky., gave Republicans, who believe in limited government interference in the daily lives of citizens, a ringing endorsement while criticizing their inactivity on producing a budget, CNS News reported.
At a press conference Tuesday, Yarmuth said Republicans “want to emasculate government at every possible turn” and are out “to starve the beast.”
Now you’re getting it.
“This is a sign of the problems inherent in the Republican Party right now,” he said. “When you have people who really don’t believe in government, who want to emasculate government at every possible turn.”
He went on to complain that the GOP does not want to fund federal behemoths like the Food and Drug Administration and the Environmental Protection Agency.
“They want to starve the beast, so the beast looks like it cannot provide the kind of services the American people want,” he added.
He may have been more accurate if he had said the kind of services the Democratic Party wants to provide in furtherance of a dedicated entitlement class voting bloc.
