I'm not the world's leading expert on recessionay monetary policy or a Pinceton economist. Bernanke is. I'll leave it up to him to decide.
thats my problem with education(as you have pointed out in other post) bernanke can say that borrowing money at a self destructive rates is a good idea,and because of his education we take it as gospel even if it counters common sense! "he knows better than i do", thats the philosophy that is killing this country. are we not in control of our own destiny,or are we waiting for the next over educated prick to tell us what to do?
btw, i learned that in the champagne room you condescending prick!

I have been waiting for this day.

The Tea Party supporters who wanted cuts should be happy!

Or is it a case of "be careful what you wish for" that is now setting in on them?

When one side refuses to compromise and that one side is conrolled by a faction they fear and need for votes this is the outcome.

Sadly, the main supporters of the Tea Party are the same ones to be hurt by these cuts. How does it feel to be used!

most tea party folks realize that this cut is useless,as a matter of fact i cant understand why anyone would be talking much about it. its a small portion of what it should be.

They have 30 more days to prepare on top of the 18 months that have already passed. Everyone should have been prepared for this.Only problem I see is that anyone with a government job thought they were untouchable.

You're a non-argument-making idiot, Mandy! I love how you extrapolated from ONE (alleged, mind you) incident to the
entire group of workers.

And, yes, I am judging you, you hypocrite!

Listen up. There will be no furloughs. There never was going to be any. It was just a political game to get Congress and Senate to do something. It didn't work.

So, "in the know" how is that never going to happen working out for you? I can tell you it's not working out too well for the Fort Knox workers or the Hardin County economy. Thanks Mitch and Rand.
