Damn, math really messes shit up. I mean, first you get told about all this money that got saved and, then, boom, it’s gone because turns out…it wasn’t saved at all. Welcome to the wild world of fiscal deals made by political parties who care mostly about their own futures, not the futures of regular people.
It is always a curious phenomena to watch people pretend as if facts don’t matter. Ideology trumps reality. The debt crisis is a great example.
A lot of people are squirming and screeching, demanding that Congress take action. Do something about that damn “fiscal cliff” — a phony elite construction by the way. My view is: don’t do anything and the country will be better off.
This is no great shakes, which I will point out in an upcoming post. But, ok, it’s better than nothing.
