Just print more money

Rep. Adam Schiff believes that the United States should provide economic assistance to fledgling democracies in the Middle East (“Local reps talk of aiding Middle East,” March 27).

“Our current economic circumstances cannot cripple us from seeing the opportunity and the necessity of a vigorous effort now,” he said. “How can we find the resources to help those countries economically stay on the path they are on?”

Answer: Print more money. After all, the national debt is a mere $12 trillion. The bank bail-out cost a paltry $245 billion. The state of California deals with a trifling $20-billion deficit.

Damn the deficit! Start the presses!
