Political "Solutions"

The government has a solution for everything. The voting masses, always wont to listen to lawyers and bureaucrats promise pain free solutions to even the most vexing of problems, continue to elect over paid cradle to the grave government nannies to soothe our pains and guarantee a better day.

Thomas Sowell in Townhall today points out the all too obvious:

It is remarkable how many political "solutions" today are dealing with problems created by previous political "solutions." Three examples that come to mind immediately are the housing market crisis, the wildfires in southern California, and the water shortages in the west.
The whole article is so packed with common sense that it will go completely unnoticed by government busybodies. After all, why would a bureaucrat ever listen to an economist on the workings of the world when they are perfectly good politicians willing to guarantee (for only the price of a vote) that none of the laws of economics will have jurisdiction beyond the next election cycle?
