Wealth & Poverty Review GOP Go Positive

In the Washington Examiner, my new Discovery Institute colleague Scott Powell, along with David Lowry, urged the Republican front runner (whoever that might be) to “go positive and go on the offensive.” To judge from the ads in Alabama and Mississippi, the GOP competitors aren’t yet doing that. Here’s hoping that the Republican primary will soon become less of a circular firing squad, and more of a unified evangelistic crusade for fiscal sanity.
As Powell and Lowry say:

The U.S. economy is at a tipping point, and absent fundamental reform, we face a permanent downward spiral, which leads to a collapse of the very social welfare programs that Obama and the Democrats claim to champion.
