The question of the hour

Here it is:

Who Should Pay to Fix the Economy?

Here's how the article gets started:

Imagine you live in the suburbs and the residence next door is sold. The new owners raze the old cottage, build a McMansion and party 24/7. The neighbors complain about the noise but nothing is done until the house is trashed. Then your city council declares the dwelling a hazard and demands that you and your neighbors clean it up. Unfair? Of course, but that's what has happened in the US, where the rich and powerful had a decades-long party and trashed the economy. Now Republicans want average citizens to pay for the repairs.

I do recommend that you read the rest of it.
