Have we, as a society, gone absolutely stark, raving mad?
Or is there another reason? Could it be that special interest money dictates that our government builds roads rather than sheltering and educating homeless children? Why is our money spent on prisons rather than on securing a comfortable old age for senior citizens?
If any small business, or any household, tried to follow the example set by Wisconsin’s government, that business or household would go bankrupt in a sea of debt, chaos and irresponsibility. But government has an advantage that the household or the small business doesn’t have. Government’s books don’t have to balance because government has a constant stream of taxpayer revenue to cover its dubious activities, and if government goes farther behind, why then it will just take the taxpayer a few more years to catch up, if ever.
