EDITORIAL:         Financial Wizardry, Government Style   

                                Those taxpayers whose money presently supports the U.S. Federal Government are now $225,000 each behind on their payments, not counting interest due. That’s their share of the U.S. National debt. And that’s because that government now consumes 38% of the annual national gross domestic product.  Governments are consumers, not producers; the current behemoth has grown on money borrowed and therefore owed and upon money diverted from the erstwhile middle class. That has contributed to the transmogrification of erstwhile middle class housewives into working mothers.              

                Now, the Bidenfolk want to up government consumption trillion or two and raise taxes on the “rich”. “Rich” appears to include most just comfortably above the poverty level. Corporate taxes are also to rise; those hit corporate customers, of whom some are rich. And these are to be imposed upon an economy not yet out of COVID lockdown. And to think we elect these guys … or so we’re told.
