Now I'm just being silly. Really. Really rhymes with silly.
This year the Bush era tax cuts are going to expire because the government is stupid. Of course, we are in debt up to our ears and raising taxes is an easy way to pay for it. Obama promised he'd cut spending. Obama promised a lot of things. If he'd have kept up to 20% of his promises he'd have been a wonderful president. Vote for Gary. Romney sucks too.
Also in recent news, the feds are trying to keep interest rates at an all time low to help the mortgage industry. If borrowing is good for the government, it's got to be good for the people because, well because, it's "of the people, by the people, for the people". Eveyone borrow more money. We'll make it as painless as possible and who knows? During the borrowing era, maybe something completely unrelated will happen and the economy will turn around and we can all look back and say, "look how smart our government was".
Maybe this should have been Politics (2 of n). Hindsight and all.
