When it happens in a cartoon, it’s funny, isn’t it? Is it so amusing when 536 people (for those who dozed off during high skool civics, that’s 100 senators, 435 representatives, and one president) keep promising that if you’ll just let them a smidgen deeper into your pocket now, why, next year they’ll get squared away? Really. We promise. And we are expected to believe them.
And we do. Time, after time, after time.
