Sarah Palin believes she found the thorn in the rose of President-elect Trump’s job-saving Carrier deal.
The former Alaska governor said the deal was “crony capitalism” in a scathing op-ed piece for the Young Conservatives website.
When government steps in arbitrarily with individual subsidies, favoring one business over others, it sets inconsistent, unfair, illogical precedent. Meanwhile, the invisible hand that best orchestrates a free people’s free enterprise system gets amputated. Then, special interests creep in and manipulate markets. Republicans oppose this, remember? Instead, we support competition on a level playing field, remember? Because we know special interest crony capitalism is one big fail.
Politicians picking and choosing recipients of corporate welfare is railed against by fiscal conservatives, for it’s a hallmark of corruption. And socialism. The Obama Administration dealt in it in spades. Recall Solyndra, Stimulus boondoggles, and all their other taxpayer-subsidized anchors on our economy. A $20 trillion debt-ridden country can’t afford this sinfully stupid practice, so vigilantly guard against its continuance, or we’re doomed.
Palin, despite the fact that she is being considered for a cabinet position, said “federal government imposition is never the solution.”
Though it would probably be tough to convince the Carrier employees who kept their jobs that Trump should have stayed out of it.
And perhaps Palin would change her tune if she listened to a simple 45-second clip by Fox News’ Eric Bolling that showed why the deal is a major win for the Trump administration, Carrier employees, the federal and state government, and taxpayers.
