George Will Skewers The Politicians

George Will at his best.

The stimulus legislation is a strange response to the president’s inaugural call for “a new era of responsibility.” State and local governments, which in the five flush years 2003–07 irresponsibly increased spending five times faster than population growth, will get hundreds of billions. Forty-nine states have governors better than California‘s, but as that state sinks into insolvency (its budget deficit is 40 percent of the sum of all the states’ deficits) Arnold Schwarzenegger is merrily saving the planet.
