Boomers’ legacy

Observations on the new tax law, budget negotiations, resulting continued federal deficit spending, and the growth in government debt and interest payments:

Balanced and deficit budgets are the difference between governing and pandering.

What’s the difference between a Republican and a Democrat? A Republican will try and bribe you with your own money. A Democrat will use other people’s money.

Blaming politicians is like shooting the mirror because you don’t like the reflection.

For baby boomers the reflection shows the largest theft by a generation of their children and grandchildren in our country’s history.
