Subtitle: How Big Government Puts the Squeeze on America’s Families, Finances, and Freedom by Joel Miller
Your right to pursue happiness has been revoked by Big Government.
Thousands of pages of regulations, millions of employees, and trillions of tax dollars . . . Big Government is bigger than ever, and as this bloated behemoth continues to fatten up and stretch out, it squeezes America’s entrepreneurs, workers, and families — cutting our choices, limiting our opportunities, and squelching our right to pursue happiness.
Every year, taxes increase, regulations pile higher, the cost of living goes up — and our quality of life suffers. So with everyone obsessing about the obesity problem in America, isn’t it time we looked at the fat, flabby, overstretched, and overbloated behemoth that is American government?
Size Matters shows through facts, figures, and head-spinning stories that as government increases in quantity, we all suffer a loss in life quality. Joel Miller reveals the damning details of Big Government’s impact on the lives of ordinary Americans. How it . . .
-reduces family income
-drives up the cost of housing, healthcare, and most every other consumer product or service
-misdirects entrepreneurial efforts
-stifles vital marketplace creativity and innovation
Bristling with drama and data, Size Matters reveals the real daily drawbacks of Big Government. It comes down to this . . .
Big Government = Huge Problem. Size really does matter.
