Barack Obama has really worked the public with his new public works program. He will offer states a “compelling” investment: he will compel them to use citizens’ “precious tax dollars” to “invest” in massive public works projects – or risk losing the money. This is a type of “investment” worth opting out of. Except that it is not an investment at all – it is merely government consuming people’s tax dollars. It is the equivalent of a thief telling you: “Don’t worry! I’ll be investing your money. And other people will be using it for their benefit. Don’t be so selfish anyway.”
