The article is spot on, the government doesn't have the kind of money to make this a feasible venture, and it never will until the root problem is dealt with IMO.
Actually the deficit is over 100 trillion when you add in all the committed entitlement programs. I agree though the Fed should be dissolved and is the main reason were in this predicament.
