WHAT COULD GO WRONG? Peppermint Psaki Says Biden Wants to “Make Fundamental Change In Our Economy.”

Ronald Reagan once said that the nine most terrifying words in the English language are, “I’m from the government and I’m here to help.” Now the Biden administration has given us a 10-word sentence that might be even scarier.

“The president wants to make fundamental change in our economy?1 And he feels coming out of the pandemic? Is exactly the time to do that. And if we don’t do it now? If we don’t address the cost of child care… if we don’t address the climate crisis, if we don’t ensure that universal pre-K is a reality now? We’re not gonna have the same opportunity to do it for some time.”

Good! Please, please, please let this crisis go to waste.

It’s a lot quicker and easier to “fundamentally change” something than it was to build it in the first place. For example, you can “fundamentally change” your house by dousing the whole place in gasoline and lighting a match. Are you better off than you were before you fundamentally changed it?

Don’t worry though, Biden can handle it — just ask him:

“Milton Friedman isn’t running the show anymore,” Biden told Politico last year. “When did Milton Friedman die and become king?” Biden asked in 2019. The truth is that Friedman, who died in 2006, has held little sway over either Democrats or Republicans for almost two decades. But Biden wants to mark the definitive end of Friedman and the “neoliberal” economics he espoused by unleashing a tsunami of dollars into the global economy and inundating Americans with new entitlements.

I’m sure things will turn out differently this time around.

UPDATE: Or not: That 70s Show: Inflation spikes to 13-year high.
