    Does this punk work for the Federal Reserve System, the federal government, the State of Illinois, City of Chicago or CPS because all of them have been passing phony money for decades? That money's called unsustainable, crushing public debt with a Social Security System Administration and Medicare system that is predicted to be insolvent 18 to 22 years depending upon the forecasts. The State of Illinois, City of Chicago, CPS and many other state and local governments are much closer than that to insolvency. He has a bright future in government.
