Big Bad Government. What?

Senator Elizabeth Warren says what every public official should say: “Government” isn’t the scary boogeyman that the Right has trained you to believe it to be. It is what keeps us safe, strong, educated and free, every day, in a million ways. Where it is flawed, we should fix it. But it’s not Bad. Government is how we as a community of citizens do things together that we can’t do as well alone. Like build bridges. Educate all our children. Go to war. Provide reliable drinking water. That’s what this Congress is shutting down when it shuts down the government.
