It’s this kind of crazy talk that was apparently responsible for Rep. Justin Amash (R-Mich.) getting the boot from the House Budget Committee. After weeks of fiscal cliff nonsense, it’s nice (and almost shocking) to hear a conservative approach to government articulated so clearly.

Uh oh. It’s an ideological throw-down from Minnesota state representative (and Matt Damon stunt double) Ryan Winkler.

We don’t recall Amash calling for an absence of government, but the absence of leadership in Washington is definitely not cool.
