Quote of the Day – Congressman Keith Ellison Edition

“The bottom line is we’re not broke, there’s plenty of money, it’s just the government doesn’t have it, The government has a right, the government and the people of the United States have a right to run the programs of the United States. Health, welfare, housing – all these things.”

Oh and it gets scarier than this, listen to what he wants to spend new tax dollars on:

“fund international sustainable prosperity programs such as health care investments, AIDS treatment, research and prevention programs, climate change adaptation and mitigation efforts by developing countries, and international assistance.”

He wants to tax every single trade on the stock and commodity markets, and he doesn’t even want to spend it in this country.    The government actually doesn’t have right.  He doesn’t even understand our founding documents.  They give rights to the citizens, not to the government.  Asshat.
