Life in the Age of "Much Worse Than We Thought It Would Be"
Of course you are right, but I do not like your chances. I see no one in either party with the courage to tell the electorate that they cannot continue to borrow from their children: government spending must be cut and taxes must be raised (and raised for everyone - the rich, the affluent, the comfortable and the just getting by).
We will continue to vote for candidates who promise us lower taxes and more government services until the system goes bust. Then we will blame the politicians. "We didn't vote you in to break the buck," we will say. But that is precisely what we did.
