The Real War on Wal-Mart is to Expand Government

Brendan Miniter in today’s Wall Street Journal

“Let’s first understand that the drive to enact anti-Wal-Mart legislation has very little to do with the retail giant except in two respects: dipping into its very deep pockets, and using the controversy surrounding the company to mask the larger agenda of expanding already-bankrupt entitlement programs.”

Miniter looks at the Maryland legislator who pushed the “Wal-Mart Bill” and his subsequent proposals to expand government-run health care via corporations first, then all the way down to the mom-and-pop businesses.

Similar proposals continue to float around in PA….unfortunately.
