Whether we go over the "fiscal cliff" or not, our legislators – what there are of those who still care about personal freedom and sound economy – should use this debate as a "teaching moment" – even if they have to hire someone like economists Thomas Sowell, Walter Williams, William Anderson, Robert Higgs, Steven Horwitz, Peter Klein, Walter Block, Gary North, Lawrence Reed, or Mark Spitznagel to write their speeches for them. . . . . . . . . In my opinion, America needs the education more desperately than it needs the money.
