A Quote from George Will

“Being elected to Congress is regarded as being sent on a looting raid for one's friends.” –George Will

Sadly, there’s too much truth to this statement. And the United States National Debt continues to grow at an accelerated rate.

At least as I type this, Congress is on recess so at the moment they're not passing more bills into law, spending more money that the country doesn't have and can't afford.


  1. That's only because they aren't allowed to "phone it in." Wait until they decide that provision of the Constitution doesn't count anymore, then we're all going to be broke!

  2. Yes, quite true, but they'd miss out on their chance to pontificate in front of the C-Span cameras.

    Of course to spend a little (or a lot) of other people's money to help out their allies and friends, and of course themselves...
