This is very Dan Mitchell and very CATO but still a good reminder to all.
Cavuto is making the case that most people want to cut spending just not their stuff, using a Pizza as an example. Mitchell agrees but points out thee are plenty of places to cut and reform without hurting people’s expectations of “entitlements”. Still he issues a stern warning to the GOP. Patriotism!
Here’s a link to the Boehner story. Change.
To be fair, Boehner also said that he wanted to repeal ObamaCare, so it would be unfair to claim that the interview was all Bush-style, big-government conservatism. But it is not a positive sign that Boehner is talking about more spending before he’s even had a chance to pick out the drapes for his new office.
