Big Government Is Stifling The American Spirit

Big Government Is Stifling The American Spirit

The BriefGet Up To Speed

Just about everyone has a reason to question how the size of our government affects America'€™s financial and political future. Is government intervention in everything from economic policy to health care rewarding the '€œtakers,'€ and not the '€œmakers,'€ stifling innovators, entrepreneurs and business owners? Or has government done too little to support the growing poor and rapidly shrinking middle class?
