Tax cuts are always popular. Big government is always the enemy. Yet in times of real crisis Big Government – think the massive military operation at Normandy – comes to save the day. And when there is a massive tax cut – like the one passed by Trump – no one ever asks who is going to pay for it or how will we afford the next big crisis.
As I have seen posted by a number of people on Twitter in recent days, “everyone becomes a democratic socialist when a pandemic hits”. Everyone wants governments to step in and bail us all out.
Those tax cuts you all wanted don’t seem so smart now do they?
And what about all those conspiring Deep Staters? Who do we want telling us how to stay safe? Politicians – who told us this was not biggie — or the professional health experts who have dedicated their professional lives to civil service?
