Upset about gov't efforts to help to the economy? It's written in the Constitution!!
David Rickard, a very astute listener to my (former) radio show, pointed out something from the Constitution:
(from the preamble)
The Constitution of the United States of America
"We the people of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America."
Sustaining the economy is fundamental to "promoting the general welfare." By doing nothing or "leaving it to the market," the government is abrogating one of its fundamental responsibilities as dictated by the Constitution!
