Capitalism Magazine - Oprah and Obama

Unfortunately, the new Republican House of Representatives isn't getting it right. Perhaps they mean well, but you cannot accomplish great things merely by meaning to do so.

If the House leaders really wanted to change the direction of American politics and government, they would propose boldly. For example, they'd propose eliminating entire Cabinet departments, such as Education and Commerce. They'd propose this as only a start. They wouldn't squirm and argue amongst themselves over whether or how to return spending to 2008 levels. Returning spending to 2008 levels implies that the Bush Administration and the Congress of his era were right about spending -- the exact opposite of what they claim to believe.
