It is all-too-common for politicians, especially Barack Obama, to
speak of government projects as "investments":
This became common during the Clinton Administration.
Congress should attach the following to each spending bill:
By voting for this legislation I hereby affirm my belief that the
information and knowledge possessed by me and 434 other
Congressman-"investors" is greater than the collective
knowledge and information possessed by a Free Market of 150 million
individual investors, pension fund managers, insurance company
executives, mutual fund administrators, and brokers, all of whom do
not have the luxury of obtaining investment funds by passing a law,
but must earn their investment dollars.
