Who’s going to pay?

When I was a child, Christmas was a magical time of the year with the toys magically appearing beneath the Christmas tree.

One day, the magic was shattered when I overheard my dad complaining, “Who is going to be paying for all these magical goodies?”

Now, I look forward to the State of the Union with as much anticipation as when I was a kid, checking beneath the Christmas tree.

Oh yes, there are still those killjoys, asking the same old questions, “Who is going to be paying for all these magical goodies?”
