Read this Washington Post article. Unfortunatly, Kerry's spending is going to be even worse than Bush. Some would say this lends credence to the argument that having Bush in office prevented spending from being even higher. I am beginning to disagree with this. Having Bush in office robs us small government types of the ability to criticize the growth in big government, because OUR representative is in the white house. Given Bush's spending record I am going to need a good reason to avoid voting liberterian this election, and this Kerry article doesn't cut it.
