All one needs to know is that when govt grows GDP declines, and govt continues to grow. Even the OECD has conducted studies that prove this point.
Fortunatley, govt's are running out of other people's money, including those willing to buy unbacked govt debt.
Those in govt live in a state of denial, which drives their hypocritical Socialist agenda. They claim the "rich" are greedy, but it is their actions that are based on material jealousy and greed. What else justifies robbing other people, who may have more than they wish they had? What else explains AOC owing back taxes from over five years ago, while complaining about the rich not paying enough tax? Even the 10th Commandment says you should not covet your neighbors stuff. Maybe this is why so many Libs also loath religion.
Shrink govt and anialate the Left's agenda, and GDP will expand, which raises everyone's boat.
