Ben Zycher of the American Enterprise Institute discusses the importance of our continuing slide in the Index of Economic Freedom here. I wonder how low the US will be by the time we finally see the end of the Obama regime.

It would be interesting to see how Jay Carney (or even the Dear Leader himself) would respond if asked whether this is cause for concern. If you caught Obama in an unguarded moment, I think he’d say that economic freedom isn’t really important and must give way to government control in the interests of progress and equality.
