Steyn: Obama Aims To Finish Work Of FDR, LBJ To Create "A Big Sweden"

“I think it’s clear from the election that, you know, the majority of Americans essentially voted for European levels of spending,” conservative commentator and author Mark Steyn said on "Hannity" last night. “And you can’t have European levels of spending. We’re one percent under Canada. Americans, conservative Americans think there’s a difference between America and Canada. There’s actually isn’t any more, not in terms of government spending. We’re close to Norway.”

“We’re not quite the full Sweden yet, but we basically are spending like Europeans, but we’re not taxed like that. And the idea that you can close that gap, I think he figures out, if he can make this level of spending permanent, he changes the United States into a European social democracy and he’ll be the most consequential president of the last hundred years,” Steyn continued. “He will finish the work of FDR and LBJ and that will be it. We’ll be a big Sweden.”
