Really disheartening news here from a recent Gallup poll. We all like to think that the election in November was one that ratified the idea that costs must be cut and that government must be smaller. Well, in the aggregate maybe, because when you start pinning the American public down on cuts in particular areas, we lose our nerve and begin to act the the government addicts many of us are.
The only politician I see these days swimming against this stream is Chris Christie. Mark Sanford used to, but he's not a Governor anymore and besides, he's got better things to do.
