Why I Will Never Be a Liberal Quote of the Day

I might start fearing economic Freedom -- like John Kerry, explaining on the Senate floor why he is opposed to cutting taxes as part of the stimulus, as quoted in The Weekly Standard Blog:

If you put a tax cut into the hands of a business or family, there's no guarantee that they're going to invest that or invest it in America.

They're free to go invest anywhere that they want if they choose to invest.

Oh, I am sure that someone can defend this, saying that Sen. Kerry was merely saying that proposed tax cuts are not sufficiently targeted. However, entrusting people with the economic freedom to spend their own money as they see fit is always preferable to the creation of expansive federal make work projects, and that is what much of this package contains.
