They caused the problem and now they’re trying to solve it

— The problem going on in the country now was caused by those who are trying to solve it.

Those receiving their income and benefits from taxes are very lucky. The people in the private sector did not get a cost of living increase like those who receive it from the government.

Those who passed the cost of living law were receiving the same amount now that they were when the passed the bill.

How much money would that save us taxpayers if people would use a little more common sense? The world would be a better place to live in.
