Most puzzling to me is that even though stories like this have been going around ever since I started to pay attention to politics (in my 30's I'm 77 now) we've understood that central government doesn't work. We elect government officials who we think are at least as savvy about these things as we are but yet the 'machine' keeps grinding away, taking away personal initiative, our liberties, and now driving us toward the Obama goal of "fundamental change" which has all the trappings of the failed regimes that Reagan and Thatcher warned against. What happens to these people when they get to Washington, that they lose their principles? We are headed for scary times.
