Insane Ideas I Have!

Just had a crazy thought!

What if we borrowed some money at the current ridiculously low rates:

10 Year Treasury Rate Chart

And rebuilt our infrastructure so we don't have to sit around in the dark for a week once a year!

Or... yeah, this one is really nuts... we could tax the people who have the money and spend it on electrical grids and bridges and dikes and schools and junk!

Of course, the trade off would be that insanely rich people like Eli Broad couldn't buy off the entire New Jersey education system. Gosh, that would be just such a shame.

Hmm... More charters and testing, or an electrical grid that didn't blow up once a year?
