of living after witnessing the booms and busts triggered by loose
monetary policy.
Instead of spending money on wasteful
programs under the guise of “stimulus” and
“investments,” Republicans seek to ensure that
the federal budget cannot grow faster than
families’ ability to pay the bill.
I really really really like that first "idea", but why does that second bit sound like pandering?
