Economics 101

One to the next is its mother Each fiscal cliff breeds another There's no golden goose Oh brother, this chain noose Causes all commerce to smother Kick debt ceiling blues in the groin With Ponzi whose scheme we should join He's someone now dead For the platinum head Of a trillion buck magic act coin
