A commentary from the Hubbard County DFL recently appeared in th Enterprise praising the American Rescue Plan as a critical tool for winning the war on COVID-19, but to quote President Reagan, “The trouble with our liberal friends is not they’re ignorant; it’s just that they know so much that isn’t so.”

This legislation is not intended to help America, but rather to further its descent into socialism/communism. Only a portion – perhaps 21 percent, some say less, depending on how you classify – of the bill has anything to do with COVID-19 or medical needs.

More money is being printed in the form of stimulus checks, which will some day have to be paid for by subsequent generations.

Bailout money to states, like ours, with governors who took a wrecking ball to the economy by closing down businesses, rewards such actions and paves the way for further disruptions of the private sector.

Every point listed in the DFL commentary is intended to coax the citizen to rely on the government for subsistence and this removes the incentive to invent, create and improve our lives based on real needs of real people.

We develop so much that is beautiful about humanity in the process of recognizing and solving problems. Governments cannot do this.

Our supply chains have been hijacked by the government paying people to not work.

The expenses cited by the Democrats in our history as being paid by tax increases is a blatant lie. All that we achieve is paid for by working and economic growth of a productive society.

The high tax rates the Democrats were praising slows economic growth in key sectors. Cutting taxes and red tape is the key to economic growth, not punishing people who earned a paycheck.

The Democrats have their sights set on repealing and canceling recent tax policy under the Trump administration. That would reduce your income and mine.

To the liberals, I say we don’t need your kind of rescue. Just get out of our way.

I would like to close with another word of wisdom from President Reagan: “The nine most terrifying words in the English language are I’m from the government and I’m here to help.”
