Michael Grimm on Government Reform
When I launched into an enthusiastic description of what we were trying to get done at the agency, the congressman looked surprised. After a bit, he cut me off so he could make one thing clear: He didn't believe in government.
I asked him about the FBI, and he amended his statement to say yes, he believed in the FBI, but not other forms of "big government" and certainly not a consumer protection agency.
The meeting didn't last much longer, and afterward I kept thinking about Congressman Grimm's remark: He didn't believe in government.
