Plenty of room for waffling and misdirection before this one’s over. And nobody waffles and misdirects better than the French, who act with long arms in this instance because if Merkle gets her way, Brussels controls individual country budgets.

LOL I knew it wouldn’t be long before someone would be along to declare the fed to be a private institution.
Cash.....maybe.....but definitely, no checks.
