Now with the financial shortcomings expanding as the political elites have screwed the pooch, look for more “creative” ways to fleece your pocketbook, the control freaks and Marxists who wish to implement command control economies with cradle to grave management of every citizen’s affairs are jumping on this idea worldwide.
