As I wrote in February: While politicians found appealing rhetoric based upon small government and budgetary discipline, there’s no underlying cultural fortitude. People (myself included) still can’t bring themselves to say to Uncle Sam, “No sir, I want to do this myself,” for a large number or programs.
