As an Iowan, I’m still recovering from the hangover we call the Iowa Caucuses. Because of the presidential campaign, one of the injustices we were frequently assaulted with in television ads and phone calls was the “empty promise.” Political ads for presidential candidates made bold promises that were beyond the Constitutional authority of the position of president. I noticed the most frequently mouthed empty promise revolved around taxes. The typical candidate stated that when he was in charge, “taxes would be lowered.” No specifics, no indication of how to pay for it, no mention that perhaps Congress might have a differing opinion.
