Mark Halperin: Hillary Clinton's idea of growth is through "big, New government programs," and I would add higher taxes

Mark Halperin might not be very conservative, but he accurately describes Hillary's position that making government bigger is her program for growth.

Hillary Clinton's entire speech is available here.

Clinton keeps repeating "growth," "growth," and "growth," but it is a puzzle why someone things that higher tax rates will give an incentive for growth.  As to government spending, where does the money that the government is spending come from?  She seems unable to understand that government spending merely takes the money from others who would have spent the money someplace else.  Whether it is taxes or borrowing or printing up money, the government is taking money from others.
