More Socialist Crap

President Chirac pulls some lines from Atlas Shrugged...albeit from the wrong side.

“Certainly, their unemployment is lower than ours. But if you take the big elements in society — health policy, the fight against poverty, . . . spending involving the future — you notice that we are much, much better placed than the English.”

Yes, I'm sure this all for the "greater good" n'stuff, but how are you going to pay for those policies? With rocks?

Let's not forget, PM Tony Blair answered this a couple months ago:

"Some have suggested I want to abandon Europe's social model," Blair told the European Parliament last month. "But tell me: what type of social model is it that has 20 million unemployed in Europe, productivity rates falling behind those of the United States; that is allowing more science graduates to be produced by India than by Europe; and that, on any relative index of a modern economy -- skills, R&D, patents, IT -- is going down not up."
