As Even Germany Gives Up Austerity, Here’s A Look At Where This ‘Dangerous Idea’ Came From
May 29th, 2013 4:57 pm @LOLGOP

"Though we never really tried a stimulus, America mostly avoided austerity — extreme budget cutting during a recession to reduce debt — by delaying real cuts to the federal budget until this year, when cuts on the state and local levels are finally ending." ... " But even Germany, the country that forced the rest of the Eurozone into cutting when they should be spending, is ready to give up on this dangerous idea and try some stimulus — after its unemployment rate increased four times more than expected.

If you’ve ever wondered where the lust for austerity — or the “pain caucus,” as Paul Krugman calls its proponents — came from, you’ve got to check out this talk from Mark Blyth, author of Austerity: The History of a Dangerous Idea." Check this out: http://www.nationalmemo.com/as-even-germany-g...

I see.

Just answer this question. Do you think anyone in this administration or the IRS should be held accountable for betraying the trust of many Americans?

"Walked Into a Lamppost? Hurt While Crocheting? Help Is on the Way"
Around 140,000 new billing codes, known as ICD-10, have been added to Obamacare.
There are codes for injuries in opera houses (see code), art galleries (see code), squash courts (see code) and nine locations in and around a mobile home (see codes), from the bathroom to the bedroom.
(Yes, even being bit by a turtle and walking into a pole!)
Health insurers, doctors and hospitals are bracing for chaos as they prepare to adopt a new federally mandated format for medical billing.
...So can someone on the left PLEASE explain to me why they desire this kind of bureaucracy and adding another 300 pounds to an already incapacitated and obese government?
Homer? Lincoln? Leosnana? Heck, even nuc?
Just anyone?
Is there also a code for a Train Wreck?

Hey nitwit, they've barely begun to determine how it all happened.

And you're ready to convict someone??

I believe what the IRS did was correct. So do many Americans. Their job is to carefully screen folks who apply for tax exemption. and Teabagger groups don't qualify.

You're still an idiot, Carol. You jump to stupid conclusions because you can't think things through.

Who went to jail for Bush's Banking Collapses?? The destruction of the nation's economy??

And you're worried about a tiny IRS issue?? You partisan moron.

On Monday, several news outlets highlighted comments that Sen. Rand Paul (R-KY) made to the Iowa Republican Party earlier this month in which he mocked an Obamacare provision for being burdensome and silly. Paul ridiculed the health law for forcing doctors to use 122,000 new medical diagnostic codes for describing Americans’ injuries to the government, including for “injuries sustained from a turtle” and “walking into a lamppost.”
The new codes do, admittedly, exist. There’s just one problem with Paul’s claims — they were adopted by the George W. Bush administration, long before Obamacare was even being debated.
Paul is referring to the transition from the ICD-9 — the current system of medical code classifications that originated from the World Health Organization (WHO)— to the far more detailed ICD-10. That’s a change that was mandated by the Bush White House in its waning days and is reflective of changing international standards for coding care. Many countries have been using the updated codes for over a decade.
In a press release from August 15, 2008, Bush’s Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) wrote that it had issued rules to implement “a long-awaited proposed regulation that would replace the ICD-9-CM code sets now used to report health care diagnoses and procedures with greatly expanded ICD-10 code sets, effective Oct. 1, 2011.”"

It's a Bush policy,idiot.

As always, you supply no links but only sh it you picked from beneath your fingernails.

Anyhoo.... so what's yer point? Bad policy is bad policy.

No one in the IRS or the Obama Administration 'betrayed the public trust' so the answer to your question is an emphatic NO! Or; did you try in your own stumbling , inept way to pose a hypothetical 'trick' question? Are you talking from an alternative universe of non-sense land?

Reaslly??
How many Bush Admin folks refused to answer to subpoenas from Congress??
Here's a sample:
"President Bush, moving toward a constitutional showdown with Congress, asserted executive privilege Thursday and rejected lawmakers' demands for documents that could shed light on the firings of federal prosecutors.
Bush's attorney told Congress the White House would not turn over subpoenaed documents for former presidential counsel Harriet Miers and former political director Sara Taylor. Congressional panels want the documents for their investigations of Attorney General Alberto Gonzales' stewardship of the Justice Department, including complaints of undue political influence.
The Democratic chairmen of the two committees seeking the documents accused Bush of stonewalling and disdain for the law, and said they would press forward with enforcing the subpoenas.
"With respect, it is with much regret that we are forced down this unfortunate path which we sought to avoid by finding grounds for mutual accommodation," White House counsel Fred Fielding said in a letter to the chairmen of the Senate and House Judiciary Committees. "We had hoped this matter could conclude with your committees receiving information in lieu of having to invoke executive privilege. Instead, we are at this conclusion."
Thursday was the deadline for surrendering the documents. The White House also made clear that Miers and Taylor would not testify next month, as directed by the subpoenas, which were issued June 13. The stalemate could end up with House and Senate contempt citations and a battle in federal court over separation of powers.
"Increasingly, the president and vice president feel they are above the law," said Senate Judiciary Chairman Patrick Leahy, D-Vt. He portrayed the president's actions as "Nixonian stonewalling.""

Has Obama used Executive Priveledge to deny Congress??
No,he did not. You supported a man who defied Congress,now you seem to think that Congress is all powerful.
Got Hypocrisy?? You got it big time.
Shame on you, boy. Are you Bush-Bashing AGAIN?

The Magic Negro can't be defended, eh?

We have an administration in the throes of three major scandals where top officials knew Americans were being targeted and harrassed because of their political beliefs, where four Americans died and a lie ensued as the cause of their deaths, and reporters and news agencies' privacy was invaded by the top law enforcer of the land without following due process and lied under oath.

Is there anyone on the left who would deny any part or all of the above?

Okay nutcase there is one in this post
" You project all that stupidity out of envy." Envy of what? You think you are a special awesome of some sort.

"You believe I'm awesome, and it bothers the hell out of you."

More claims at being awesome and self stroking of a fragile ego by you, nutcase.

No one else here wastes so much space telling themselves how awesome they are then you do -it is abnormal.
