    the purse strings.
    The idea that dollars first have to transit through banks and the bond market before the Congress can spend is ludicrous. All it does is remunerate a permanent class of middlemen who have grown accustomed to getting a cut of every public dollar spent. They're like highway men of old, except their holdup is enshrined in the laws. The outlaws are now inlaws. The illegal is not legal.

    We organize governments to deliver services and prevent abuse.
