“We’re heading into a horrendous fiscal crisis in the 2020s. And we’re going to have a choice in the upcoming election between the biggest spender to inhabit the Oval Office in the last 50 years and Elizabeth Warren, who’s even worse. This is a dire outlook.
“We’ve been sleepwalking for the last two or three decades. The Fed has enabled the politicians to essentially escape fiscal responsibility.”
