    Borrowing money is not just an economic problem but a political one. You could not get even a $400 billion plan passed let alone a $2 trillion plan. Or don't you follow the news. Politically, liberty bonds are an easier sell because, as I pointed out, this would be money we have already saved. We would be borrowing from ourselves in fact. Offering the people a chance to lend to their own government would build support for government programs that simple treasury borrowing never could. Sometimes I despair of democrats. The optics are really important.

      We definitely need to do something. The problem with any solution that might work is the Republicans will be 100% against it.

      Warren Buffett, George Soros, Bill Gates, and other billionaires could offer to balance the budget by paying more taxes and the Republicans would be against it. Wait, that already happened.

      The only hope is to turn out the rascals and get reasonable people back in control.
