After struggling to narrow things down, ALG has released
its annual list of "big government busts."
Limited Government spokesman Frank McCaffrey explains that in
honor of the year being 2012, this year's list features 12 things.
"There were more than 12 big government busts this year. In
fact, we could have written a list of hundreds of honorable
mentions," McCaffrey tells OneNewsNow. "However, we had to narrow
it down to 12."
Coming in at number 12 is GM stock, followed by the green
economy, Internet regulation, European bailouts and drones being
used in the U.S.
"Number seven -- ObamaCare upheld. Number six -- I love this one
-- New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg wanted to ban the sale of
certain size drinks in New York City," the ALG spokesman continues.
"So, now the government is telling us what we can drink. Number
five is the GSA. If you remember, they had those business trips
that cost taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Number four
is the national debt."
The job market -- the number-one big government bust of 2011 --
comes in this year at number three. The terrorist attack in
Benghazi, Libya is number two.
"The number-one big government bust: After all the problems he's
had with unemployment, after all the problems he's had with
spending, after all the regulations and the taxes that have only
hurt the American marketplace, Barack Hussein Obama got reelected,"
