on August 8, 2013, 6:38 AM / in National News, News

The United States isn’t broke. There’s lots of money out there. The problem is that private individuals are holding on to it.  If the government would just confiscate all that personal wealth, we’d be back on the road to prosperity.  Heck, we could probably even have yet another “recovery summer.” That’s the mentality of people like U.S. Representative Keith Ellison […]
