In a recent editorial, Congressman Sanford Bishop decried the 2018 federal budget submitted by President Trump. He wrote that the proposal would be a “recipe for disaster” for the people of the Second Congressional District of Georgia.
Bishop said that his metric for analyzing legislation is whether or not it improves the lives of the people of Southwest Georgia. His editorial reveals his view of the citizens of Southwest Georgia as being helpless and totally dependent on the federal government.
Ironically, he said that the proposed budget would, “inhibit our nation’s ability to innovate in an increasingly competitive world.” What has inhibited our nation’s ability to innovate is explosive government intrusion and control.
Bishop’s language appears to be generous and benevolent. There is nothing benevolent or generous in government. Dependence on government assuredly results in the loss of freedom.
Sanford Bishop stands firmly with the left wing of the Democrat party. His support for bloated government spending has nearly doubled our national debt from 10.6 trillion in 2009 to 19.8 trillion today.
For nearly two and a half decades, Bishop has promoted a philosophy of dependence. The truth is that his philosophy, not Trump’s budget, is the recipe for disaster.
