Quotes from End the Fed book

What the Fed and paper money

What the Fed and paper money have done for Congress is lead legislators to believe that there are no limits on what they can spend, on what they can propose, and what they can accomplish. They really do behave like college students on spring break who are using their parents' credit cards with no limit. They don't think about the money. They don't think about who or what is paying the bills. The ability to do what they want is just taken for granted.
