As a related issue, I don't know how I should feel about the TV commercials featuring the lady who tells us that she doesn't want big government in her medicine cabinet.

On the one hand, it seems to me that many of us would be long dead by now if big government hadn't been in our medicine cabinets for many decades. We might still be buying Father John's Medicine or Scott's Emulsion or this or that other variety of snake oil.

On the other hand, when it's a question of how government money ought or ought not to be spent, that's an entirely different kettle of eye of newt. So, as is the case with almost every debatable issue, I'm right here on the fence and have no idea what I should be supporting.
