Didn't LBJ try that to pay for the war in Vietnam, causing hyper inflation in the early 70s? I think interest rates were nearly 20% when Nixon  enacted wage and price controls. Imagine a Republican even proposing that now.

Mortgage interest rates started hitting double digits in November 1978 hit a high of 18.45% September of 1981 and did not drop below 9.0% until October 1991. There were a few times it dropped briefly into the mid 9's, and I can remember family members buying homes that had good credit around 1980 and they wound up with variable interest rates that would change during the course of a year.

Nixon put in wage and price controls in early 70's due to a "huge" inflation rate that got to 6%.   As always with Republican fiscal policy, wrong response.  Set the stage for the inflation and high interest rates that followed soon after - during Ford's administration.   Jimmy Carter got the blame for the BS caused by Nixon.  And no, Reagan did not fix the problem - his "solution" to high inflation - change the way it is calculated, then looks better almost instantly.

Perspective and lost history.   To go with this, saw where Texas is gonna take Hillary Clinton and Helen Keller out of their history lessons going forward.  Sounds about right...what I would expect from the "Ted Cruz State".!

So Mannafort got convicted on 8 counts in state court in spite of having a Trump Minion on his side on the jury - no telling why she had at least one tiny moment of honesty at that point in time.  When that trial was over, she was back to bragging about what a good little Minion she is!

Today - Mannafort pleads guilty to 2 Federal counts and all 10 of the other state counts and promises to help investigators in all matters.  No more Minion opportunities to give him an acquittal on these.

Now all we gotta see is just exactly how corrupt this Congress is - as if we didn't already know with people like Inhofe and Cruz and Tom Cole - when they don't do anything against Trump for his most recent crimes of obstruction of justice.   After the next round of pardons for Mannafort sometime soon....

Intellectually dishonest.  Morally bankrupt.  Trump Minion time in America.

So Kavanaugh and his buddy are child molesters, too! Well, at least they are all gathering in one place so we can keep an eye on them! 

Let the victim blaming begin.!!
