The Wharton School at the University of Pennsylvania a number of years ago developed a comprehensive and substantive platform for evaluating the federal budget.
This model was built so that those who govern and those who are governed could have an accurate and reasonably unbiased analysis of federal fiscal activities.
It is one of the most useful and effective tools around for figuring out just what the federal government and the various players who lead it in the Democratic and Republican parties are really up to.
The conclusion, after reviewing the opening bids put forward by Biden and his people, creates a rather desperate picture that could best described as horrible, if not the horror.
The most disconcerting shift in the Biden budget is its radical expansion of the size of the federal government as a percentage of national economic activity.
For the first time in our history, other than during the Second World War, the federal government will absorb almost 25 percent of our nations wealth under the Biden budget.
If you add in the activities of states and cities, government spending will easily exceed a quarter of the countrys economic output.
And this is only the opening gambit.
Approximately $5.4 trillion of spending on new programs or expanded federal social programs is proposed in the Biden budget over ten years.
