Mark Twain quote

From The Deep State, The Fall of the Constitution and the Rise of a Shadow Government by Mike Lofgren. Twain’s wisdom and way with words makes him the most quotable author in the English language, after William Shakespeare.

“I think I can say, and say with pride, that we have some legislatures that bring higher prices than any in the world.”

Published in 1875 and nothing has changed in 141 years.
