Nowhere in the campaign did I hear anyone tell the American people that we borrow 40 cents of every dollar we spend. Even the dumbest rube knows you can't keep that up indefinitely. They just didn't know enough to make an intelligent decision. And it's our fault.
That said the constant drone of "Tax the rich" will soon be fulfilled. The real fun will be when the public learns you can't collect enough to even make a small dent in the mess we have.
Who will be the boogeyman then? The folks that make the ink we use to print the 80 billion "Ben Bucks" a month - of money created out of thin air ?
