Imagine a country where everybody is a trillionaire. That's the kind of change South Carolina Governor Mark Sanford thinks we can believe will result from Barack Obama's stimulus plan.
The United States faces a Zimbabwe-style economic collapse if it keeps "spending a bunch of money we don't have," South Carolina Gov. Mark Sanford said Wednesday…
"What you're doing is buying into the notion that if we just print some more money that we don't have and send it to different states, we'll create jobs," he said. "If that's the case, why isn't Zimbabwe a rich place?"
What Governor Sanford doesn't understand is, if you print money, you have that money. That's simple biology. Like, if I make a sandwich, I have a sandwich. Or if I make 1000 paper cranes, I still have leukemia. Or if I make lots and lots of money, I can make a money sandwiches for all of the kids in America dying of leukemia.
Our kids deserve better. Call Mark Sanford and tell him to stop denying America's 12-year-old cancer patients the sweet, umami taste of money.
