Now is Not the Time to Be More Like Europe
The ongoing crack-up of Europe, and the pending collapse of the Eurozone, is an ugly thing to behold. But their failure can be our gain, if we just learn from their mistakes.
A new video by the Center for Freedom and Prosperity provides 5 lessons from the European fiscal implosion that US policymakers should take to heart. In short:
1) Higher taxes lead to higher spending, not lower deficits.
2) A value-added tax would be a disaster.
3) A welfare state cripples the human spirit.

5) Bailouts don’t work.
