I pity Stephen Moore as the victim of poor timing. A Federal Appeals Court just gave Dick Cheney a victory in his coverup regarding the 2001 energy task force. The State Department told the Senate Foreign Relations Committee no on the Bolton documents request. And the National Review decides to today is the day to run Stephen’s claim that we have too much whistleblowing activity.
I’ll grant his argument that we should review what is the best incentive structure for detecting fraud, but I’m a little surprised that a supply-sider is arguing against money being a proper incentive.
