Liberals are feeling triumphant these days, but in the backs of their minds there must be a sense of foreboding. They won this year by demonizing Republicans and by bribing various demographic groups with government largesse. But the Left’s tactical victory can’t conceal the fact that its ideology is bankrupt. The left’s real enemy isn’t Republicans, it is arithmetic.

Senate Democrats have not prepared a budget in four years, probably because they realize that it would show without a doubt that there is not enough money in the world to do what they want. Sooner or later they will run out of other people’s money.
