Thursday’s Family Update with Michael Geer:

Just last week, the news reported that in stimulus spending and bailouts, the U.S. government and the Federal Reserve have spent, lent or committed $12.8 trillion, an amount that approaches the value of everything produced in the country last year.

Thomas Jefferson called such borrowing, “Swindling futurity on a grand scale.” Let’s not let our political leaders burden out posterity – our children and grandchildren, with such debt.
