We The Guinea Pigs

I recently read an article in the Wall Street Journal about Ben Bernanke’s comments regarding the possible need to help stimulate our economy in light of the financial crisis in Europe.  And in light of my recent trip to Washington D.C., it made me start thinking about the many folks who reside within the Beltway.  Many of these individuals (decision makers) deal in the world of theories – Is Obama’s shifting of wealth a real way to make things right?  Does economic stimulus really work?  Does the Tea Party have the solution.  No one really knows.  It’s theory.  Yet, the folks in D.C. push their ideas as it was a proven fact, not understanding that their decisions can affect millions in adverse as well as positive ways.  The only way the theories get proven is on the back of the citizens of the U.S.  What a country!
