To describe his plan to revive his economy, President Obama used lofty rhetoric about opportunity during his State of the Union address last night. But Heritage Foundation economist Stephen Moore says the reality doesn’t match the rhetoric:
Opportunity for All is such an uplifting pro-America theme. But doesn’t this mean school choice? Doesn’t it mean cleaning up the crime and corruption in cities? Doesn’t it mean discouraging fatherless homes? Doesn’t it mean keeping tax rates low and regulations light so people can set out a shingle and start businesses?
Obama has been the anti-opportunity society president.
