Four years pass and you come back to the house and the only thing that is fixed is the sidewalk leading up to the house. The contractor says- "I stopped it from falling apart. Do you see that side walk that I put in? The house is in better shape than four years ago. The problem I am having is that the house was in much worse shape than I thought - so I need another four years and another $200,000."
What do you do? You would be a dumb fool
to keep the contractor and not replace him with someone else. The same
way you would be a dumb fool if you reelected Obama. In either scenario
- you will get what you deserve for being so foolish and that is a house
still in disrepair and just deeper in debt.
