There has been a lot of talk in recent weeks in the news about just how big should government get? Many people adhere to the beliefs of the Tea Party who say that our government should stay out of our health care and not tell us what to do. That government is getting too big, and worse than that, government is not listening to the people. It’s too involved in our daily lives and too controling.Let’s discuss this issue about how much government should control. This can get to be a very passionate discussion because people have strong opinions. From our readings we see that other presidents took control at times. 1. Is this a good idea or bad idea?2. Why?
