Thanks for another insightful article. How bad will it get before the people who vote for big government start to replace the wastrels with sane people who see the states cannot continue to tax in order to support public sector unions' better wages, healthcare and retirement? I recently read Gaidar's "Russia: A Long View" and what he describes as serfdom looks a lot like what the faltering states have. The elites are now the public sector and cronies; they are not unlike the old aristocracy of Russia who took everything except bare substance from the serfs.
