Cicero Quote Regards Governance of Rome

The following quote has been making the rounds on the internet since 2008, and has been refuted as not being an accurate quote from Cicero. That said, whether it was said by such a notable person or not, the wisdom it contains is undeniable.

 “The budget should be balanced, the Treasury should be refilled, public debt should be reduced, the arrogance of officialdom should be tempered and controlled, and the assistance to foreign lands should be curtailed, lest Rome become bankrupt. People must again learn to work instead of living on public assistance.” – Cicero , 55 BC
