Congratulations to Senator Scott Brown, his campaigners, volunteers, people of Massachusetts, Tea Partiers and America!
The next question is: what does D.C. do now? Do they A) “hard pivot” as some rumors have suggested and suddenly practice fiscal discipline and strong defense B) stay the course but be “more combative” as some in the White House had suggested or C) talk A but do B?
"Even before the polls closed, the White House was suggesting the outlines of a recovery strategy, a combination of a more populist tone and an embrace of greater fiscal responsibility."
And what would this “populist tone” and “greater fiscal responsibility” look like? Would it include tax increases? Why yes, The New York Times says, it most likely would.
My wager is that this Administration and the leaders of this Congress do not truly understand the benefits of true fiscal responsibility, they do not believe in the principles and therefore will only pay lip service to them.
And they will therefore say the words of “fiscal discipline”, perhaps limp to the center with a few token, publicity-shot measures, but on the whole will act in the hard left, anti-growth patterns they are most comfortable with.
And the one thing about being in positions of power versus campaigning for positions of power: eventually you must act. And your actions will prove whether your words (such as: “we are now dedicated to job creation, growth of the economy & fiscal discipline”) are truth or fantasy.
