Steyn: Obama Aims To Finish Work Of FDR, LBJ To Create "A Big Sweden"
â€śI think itâ€™s clear from the election that, you know, the majority of Americans essentially voted for European levels of spending,â€ť conservative commentator and author Mark Steyn said on "Hannity" last night. â€śAnd you canâ€™t have European levels of spending. Weâ€™re one percent under Canada. Americans, conservative Americans think thereâ€™s a difference between America and Canada. Thereâ€™s actually isnâ€™t any more, not in terms of government spending. Weâ€™re close to Norway.â€ť
â€śWeâ€™re not quite the full Sweden yet, but we basically are spending like Europeans, but weâ€™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 heâ€™ll be the most consequential president of the last hundred years,â€ť Steyn continued. â€śHe will finish the work of FDR and LBJ and that will be it. Weâ€™ll be a big Sweden.â€ť
