The Cato Institute’s Dan Mitchell explains that if the goal is bigger government and more red ink, than higher taxes are a solution. Dan is America’s foremost scholarly, think tank advocate against big government and pro Federalism leading to innovation, diversity and experimentation.
In his “The Best-Ever Argument for Federalism,” Dan writes, “The nation with the most decentralization and federalism is Switzerland, and that country does very well notwithstanding having different languages and cultures.”
Looking at America, Dr. Mitchell harks back to Thomas Jefferson: “Congress has not unlimited powers to provide for the general welfare but only those specifically enumerated.”
