Quote of the week

February 27th, 2009 by Ken

(In light of recent national issues, the following quote from Henry Morganthau, FDR’s Secretary of Treasury and a close friend, in a 1939 report to Congressional Democrats.)

We have tried spending money.  We are spending more money than we have ever spent before and it does not work.   And I have just one interest, and if I’m wrong – – somebody else can have my job.  I want to see this country prosperous.  I want to see people get a job.   I want to see people get enough to eat.  We have never made good on our promises.   I say after eight years of this administration we have just as much unemployment as when we started – – and an enormous debt to boot.
