Paul Broun Weeps for the Rich

One of the most dangerous myths in the United States is the belief that governing is something anyone can do, and worse yet, something that only the ignorant can do. Thus we get people like Paul Broun who introduced a bill into Congress that would reduce the debt ceiling. But Broun has other things on his mind like the reduced consumption of luxury goods:

When someone is overextended and broke they don’t continue paying for expensive automobiles, they sell the expensive automobiles and buy a cheaper one. They don’t continue paying for country club dues, they drop out of the country club.

Who voted this guy into office? I’ll give you a hint: it was not people with expensive cars and country club memberships; there aren’t enough of them.
