The History of Federal Budget Crisis: A Tea Party Coup?

Repeal or we will destroy USA!
“He who controls the past controls the future. He who controls the present controls the past.”
George Orwell, 1984

My response is the above Orwellian quote.

In my words, understanding history is a prerequisite for understanding the present. And if one truly understands the present, one can exert more influence in shaping the future.
