You just answered the whole problem. The govt having access to a printing press. We're in big trouble considering our money is intrinsically worthless. Is this economic crisis not the result of the FED reserve's wanton printing?

The New York governor refuses to increases taxes for the rich but everyone else will have to pay more money anyway for the services they need like education, health care, etc. Typical American politician...
