What’s wrong with Matt Denn? 13 February, 2009Posted by David Anderson in Economic Policy, State.
I like Lt. Gov. Matt Denn. He strikes me as an honest, dedicated public servant and if you ever seen him with his children, you know he is a wonderful father. So this is not personal, it is just about policy. It scares me that he may be the future of the Democrat party if we don’t pay attention.
Did you notice Denn’s opposition to Senate Bill 7, the eminent domain restrictions? He said that in these times we have to have government being able to do what ever was necessary to get growth going again. In combination with his inaugural address where he blasted Reaganism as the root of our economic problems, I am getting a very scary picture.
The man doesn’t seem to believe that economy is the measure of individuals and their choices. He believes that it is a system dictated from above. It is a zero sum gain. That type of stagnent thinking has destroyed nations. If we don’t stop it in the bud, it will destroy this state.
Don’t be surprised when you see me keeping tabs on the LG. You had better do the same.
