I want to know where the money is coming from and who it’s going to. These are very large numbers, so the allotments can be easily “lost” in the accounting.
Is there some lowly accountant greenshade guy somewhere that is writing billion dollar bailout checks to AIG, Fannie May, etc.? And is he saying, “Oh, I guess I’ll get 400 billion from the Social Security Trust Fund, another 100 billion from increased taxes, just print another 100 billion, and another 100 billion out of the DOD budget when we stop sending troops to Iraq”?
I mean whose writing the checks and balancing the checkbook?
