Congressional Gridlock: Not So Bad

By December 14, 2007Energy

NAM Vice President Jay Timmons appeared on Marketplace, the American Public Media program, to talk about congressional activity and inactivity.

JAY TIMMONS: The fact that some things aren’t getting done is actually a good thing from a perspective of the economy and jobs.

Hard for some people — New York Times headline writers, for example — to get their heads around the concept, we know, but the point is right: Gridlock and inaction are preferable to an expanded government and higher taxes that make the United States less competitive in the global marketplace.

And that make individuals less free, we’d add as a personal perspective.
