In a sign of the fight ahead, Republicans on Saturday quickly blasted the Democrats' proposals as a "dangerous and costly experiment"Funny. Back in th 1770s, British loyalists damned the venture of American independence with pretty much the same terms.
Of course it is costly. But keeping the current system is more costly. Is it dangerous? Only to those who are determined to cling tenaciously to the status quo, and the misguided and absurd ideology that a) we live with a truly "free market" system, and b) that the free market is the anodyne for all things, in all situations, without stricture or amendment.
Patriot, or Loyalist? Which side are you on?
