Barney Frank on the Boston bombing: Let this serve as a reminder to you, smaller government tax cut zealots!

The wisdom Frank tried to impart on CNN this morning is that the best way to fight against terrorism is by making government a lot bigger.

Video via The Weekly Standard:

“In this terrible situation, let’s be very grateful that we had a well-funded, functioning government. It is very fashionable in America, and has been for some time to criticize government, belittle public employees, talk about their pensions, talk about what people think … of [their] health care. Here we saw government in two ways perform very well. … I never was as a member of Congress one of the cheerleaders for less government, lower taxes. No tax cut would have helped us deal with this or will help us recover. This is very expensive.”

It’s never too soon for politics, eh Barney?

Frank isn’t alone.
