    If that deal had been struck Bill Clinton would have gone down in history as a worse President than Hoover. After the crashes in 2001 and 2008 retirement would be out of the question for 90% of the citizenry. The 1% would have extracted trillions in inflated fees and wealth concentration rivaling feudalism would prevail. Congress would have raided the “surplus” during the dotcom and housing bubbles anyways. With most folks 65 to 80 in deep poverty and scratching for work, the last recession would have tipped to depression. The wealthy would be retiring to Europe so that they didn’t have to live among the indolent riff-raff.

    Heh, heh. I’ve heard from folks in that Administration that Bill’s staff was responsible for keeping him corraled away from the, uh, ‘temptation.’ You may remember that during the last shutdown staffers were sent home. Well, temptation, being what it is, had free rein. So actually your thanks should go to Newt G. for sabotaging his own nefarious plans. Silver linings, butterfly effect, and all that. Irony abounds.

    I dunno, Iless, the wealthy can live just about anywhere without rubbing elbows with the riff raff. If/when more of Europe finds itself going the route of Greece, those that don’t go to London or Switzerland will find police state Amerika a secure refuge for their money and their lifestyles.
