The premise in the title of “autocrat accountants” is not accurate. The accountants are not the problem. The problem is the politicians. The problem is Obama and his inner circle.
With due respect, your are partially wrong. What Steyn recognizes is that the erection of an autrocratic bureaucracy allows the liberal dream state to move on, regardless of what the politicians are doing and regardless of who they are. This is how totalitarians get away with it - they hide behind the bureau. And the bureau, well, they are just “following orders” or “regulations” etc.
