Don’t give me this “small government” stuff.

Rachel Maddow on small government. Transcript after the video.

Small government is a great political brand. It looks great on a bumper sticker. People who don’t want the government to help unemployed people, or the elderly, or people without health insurance, who don’t want the government to create jobs , they say it’s because government has to be small. They also want government to be monitoring every pregnancy in the country to make sure the government’s chosen outcome is the result of that pregnancy, under penalty of jail. So, make your case that you don’t want the government to help the economy, but don’t give me this ‘small government’ stuff, c’mon.

  1. Just wanted to let you know I’m thinking about you this week because I’ve brought 25 students to DC to learn about women, feminism, and government.

    And now I have to go get dressed for a day of meeting Eleanor Holmes Norton (!!), touring the Capitol, visiting with EMILY’s List (!!), and other cool stuff.
