Spreading the Fiscal Irresponsibility

The article starts with Stanley Kurtz’ Spreading the Wealth suggestion that a second Obama term would be characterized by an anti-suburban agenda that requires suburban jurisdictions to finance core city budgets or worse, forces municipal consolidations. The reality is that this anti-suburban agenda predates the Obama Administration by more than one-half century, and as Kurtz notes, includes all manner of attempts to force people to live and travel in ways they do not prefer (smart growth strategies). As important as it is to thwart a Washington anti-suburban agenda, the threat will continue whether the President is re-elected or if so, whether such an agenda is pursued.
