Big Government proponents justify government growth under the auspices of helping "the little guy". But the results of Big Government tell a different story. Especially in the business world, rather than being an objective referee, Big Government colludes with Big Business and drives out small business through burdensome and costly regulation, complex and unequal taxation, and corruption masquerading as corporate welfare.
A report from the Mercatus Center at George Mason University is more proof of this phenomenon. Dodd-Frank was a government takeover of the financial sector disguised as reform. The chart below taken from the report shows Dodd-Frank is accomplishing its ultimate goal--the takeover of small banks by big banks.
