George Will on Obama Economic Planning

The Obama administration's agenda of maximizing dependency involves political favoritism cloaked in the raiment of "economic planning" and "social justice" that somehow produce results superior to what markets produce when freedom allows merit to manifest itself, and incompetence to fail. The administration's central activity -- the political allocation of wealth and opportunity -- is not merely susceptible to corruption, it is corruption. --Full column here.

This, however, George, is not simple corruption. Simple corruption is getting paid to put someone on the government payroll, Obama corruption is much, much more harmful to the entire economy. Obama corruption is seemingly about restructuring the entire economy in favor of unions and the Wall Street elite, chiefly, Goldman Sachs. I repeat Obama corruption is about restructuring the entire economy for the privileged few. Let everyone else watch baseball games in HD on television.

    "...It's also increasingly obvious that the bankers own the nation and that Goldman Sachs runs the nation and the banks. .... And what Goldman doesn't control, the Pentagon controls..."
