State Senator Mary Lazich (R-New Berlin) represents parts of four counties: Milwaukee, Waukesha, Racine, and Walworth. Her Senate District 28 includes New Berlin, Franklin, Greendale, Hales Corners, Muskego, Waterford, Big Bend, the town of Vernon and parts of Greenfield, East Troy, and Mukwonago. Senator Lazich has been in the Legislature for more than a decade. She considers herself a tireless crusader for lower taxes, reduced spending and smaller government.
Conservative columnist Thomas Sowell provides us an important history lesson.
Some would argue the Great Depression was caused by a failure of the free market system. They claim that only when the federal government imposed its solutions did America crawl out of its fiscal abyss.
Not so, says Sowell. A series of government interventions after the stock market crash of 1929 led to a huge increase in unemployment. It’s a lesson we should heed.
Sowell’s column is a must-read.
