Libertarian policy goal in the fiscal cliff agreement? Wow

” … instead of markets directing economic resources to their most efficient uses, the Government directs resources to other uses, creating a drag on economic growth and job creation.” Section 202(a)(3)(A) of the Pathway to Job Creation through a Simpler Tax Code Act, signed yesterday by President Obama as part of the “fiscal cliff” agreement.

Can the 113th Congress and a liberal president actually meet a goal where markets direct resources?
