I recently read a news item about Senator John Kerry’s remarks about voter anger at Washington. He said, “I think there’s a comprehension gap,” in relation to what the president and Congress are doing to solve the economic problems our country is experiencing. He said of our economy, “We’ve come back . . . this is an amazing resurgence.”
The only amazing aspect about the present state of American economic affairs is just how little those populating Congress and the executive branch understand (or how much they are opposed to) the functioning of a free-market economy. Amazing indeed. Talk about a comprehension gap!
