Is Government too big–or just a bit flabby?

We don’t need big government – but we do need government as big as it needs to be. How about medium or medium large? We’re a big country–not as big as some but big and we need government relatively big, to manage things in a democratic way.

We don’t need too many regulations; we should get rid of foolish ones. But we need to protect the environment and laborers and consumers and civil rights. So we need *some* strong regulations and while they will not always be perfectly convenient to business, they won’t cripple it.

And we do need some social safety net. More than we have now, including public option or single payer medicine, at least– but not so much safety net we encourage people to languish in it.
