It's Horrible When Things Cost Money

Ed Gamble, 11/21/13:
A government is a poor and limited thing, and can only do one thing at a time -- it's either a Mars probe or Obamacare. (Or, presumably, the interstate system, or the military, or Social Security, or Medicare, or the FDA, or or or.)

Those of us who remember the days when the federal government could launch two wars and a major new entitlement (Medicare Part D) without breaking a sweat -- let alone a two-front global war plus dragging ourselves out of the Depression -- wonder when Americans got so lame and wimpy.
