Pigs at the Trough

From Cafe Hayek:

Words of wisdom

Russell Roberts


If you're not at the table, you're on the menu.

Summarizes well what people think of the political process. As the Senate debates the current proposal to spend our money, it is way too accurate.

Comment: If 17th Amendment didn't exist with all its associated political gain, would the US Senate led by actual State representatives contribute to our current economic struggle by digging deeper into this hole as the current Senate is, or would there be restraint and more concern for limited federal government involvement? If the 17th is ever going to be overturned we have to understand the current view of the US citizenry. Like it or not it is reflective of and in the current Congressional body.
