Obama Learns the Wrong Lesson From Governors

The advantages of printing money.

Another thing about governors that Washington could learn from, as noted by Mitch McConnell on Fox News Sunday, is that it's hard to be overreaching as governor because the fact of the matter is, governors can't borrow "money from our grandchildren to send it down to them to make their employment situation with state employees less severe."
