You’re not as free as you think you are

Not too impressive for the erstwhile leader of the free world. It’s too bad that both major parties are working hard to push Americans further down the list of countries that are economically free, especially considering that only 16 were considered “free” by the Heritage Foundation. I think one could even make a strong case for the USA being listed as a second-tier “mostly free” economy.
