The unifying theme, in case it’s not obvious, is that the Administration will go along with any outcome that enables more spending and bigger government.
In the second half of the video, the discussion shifts to whether the government has the right to seize children if parents allow them to get too chubby. Not surprisingly, I’m leery of giving bureaucrats that kind of power.
