Slow Learners

This is an email message from my brother this morning. It's time for both voters and politicians learn the lesson.

"The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work, instead of living on public assistance."
- Cicero - 55 BC

So what have we learned in 2,064 years?
Evidently nothing...
