While we were focusing on the election it looks like we didn’t notice U.S. federal government spending for October 2012 was 16.4 percent greater than October 2011.

This is at a time when inflation for the same period was 2.16 percent. That level of increase seems almost unbelievable! And as a reward for a job well done we sent them all back. And they want to keep us from going over the fiscal cliff? Looks like we already did.

Jerry Forell, Kirkland
