RGF in the Wall Street Journal

New Mexico Governor Bill Richardson is running for President and is doing so by campaigning as a “market-oriented Democrat” and a tax cutter. While these terms may be music to the ears of limited government types, the truth is that Richardson has expanded government in New Mexico at an unprecedented pace.
Recently, I discussed Richardson’s fiscal record on the pages of the Wall Street Journal. Let’s just say that while he is certainly to the right of most of his Democratic colleagues (and perhaps some, Republicans as well) he’s no fiscal conservative.
