Thelma and Louise Economics
Things didn’t end all that well for Thelma and Louise, in the eponymous 1991 Ridley Scott film, as they drove off a cliff in a desperate effort to evade legal and moral responsibility for having transformed themselves from non-descript mediocrities into common criminals. An alarmingly similar political saga, starring Democrats in Washington, D.C., is playing out today – although, unlike Thelma and Louise’s crimes, plundering citizens is, unfortunately, only illegal if you were not elected to do so.
Given President Obama’s deep love for Hollywood (or at least the money of its residents), one would think that he would be aware of the impact, if you will pardon the obvious pun, of driving off a cliff.
Yet Barack “Louise” Obama along with Senator Patty “Thelma” Murray (D-WA) seem hell-bent on taking the economic version of that same road trip, as if they’ve never seen the end of the movie and aren’t smart enough to figure it out.
