Same Old SAFRA Tune

Congressman George Miller (D-CA) is at it again, publishing a letter in the New York Times Saturday implying that the Student Aid and Fiscal Responsibility Act -- which is, thankfully, languishing in the Senate right now -- would save taxpayers $87 billion over ten years. 

Quite the opposite: The bill would almost certainly cost taxpayers additional tens-of-billions, not save money. But that doesn't seem to deter Miller. Unfortunately, neither does the galactic national debt, nor that people appear to have had it with seemingly incessant expansion of federal power.
