The Truth is Left Behind

MAX FRAAD WOLFFThe US taxpayers are going to spend somewhere between $100 and $300 billion before this is all over, with this new arrangement where they bring Fannie and Freddie under their wing and assume the debts. So her campaign, her included, officially like this “bailout,” quote-unquote “bailout,” which suddenly makes the taxpayers pay for Fannie and Freddie, which they hadn’t before. So, she thinks in the past that Fannie and Freddie were a burden. They weren’t. But she thinks making them a burden to the taxpayer in the future is a great idea, because she and her campaign endorse making them a burden, even though they didn’t used to be.

Your phrasing is suggestive - looked at that way, her candidacy is precisely that: a fun-house mirror, a parody, a critique of the shortfall, before the fall.

This shortfall, does it presage a long winter?
