The article seems to have it all right. We seem to be avoiding the austerity by not balancing the budget AT ALL and spending more increasing the deficit and making the fan spin at higher rpm beffore the crap hits it. Of coarse breaking the promise of closing corporate tax loopholes and instead opening new ones in the fiscal cliff deal dosent help blue collar people. People who also had the promise of not having their taxes increased broken, in the fiscal cliff deal. The deal obama had to urgently sign. That doesn't balance the budget. Did he even read it? Does he need to when when rachel maddow blames republicans in congress and the rats follow the piper, proclaiming the hands of democrats are clean from any of this?
Go ahead and tell me how great wall street is doing, good for the bankers and global corporations. We still suffer from a huge deficit and inflated fuel and food costs.

Tell me when this thread is updated:
