Well, hate to disagree, but I disagree. WE are to blame. Not only did we allowed it to happen, we begged for it to happen. We demanded that the nation spend $16 trillion since 1980 on a failed education system, we demanded that farmers be paid for not planting, we demanded that unemployment cover 2+years, we demanded cheap Chinese products at walmart, we demanded all these things and our representatives gave it to us. An now we have buyers remorse.
Indeed, politicians only exercise extra-constitutional powers because we let them.
If every pol got the boot whenever he stepped outside the bounds, none would.
Instead, “we” reward them with re-election for enacting “social policy” instead of taking the responsibility for charity upon ourselves.
Get people back to work and Federal and State gov'ts combined will have an additional $2 Trillion in revenues and lower outlays.
