The New York Observer calls out the Congressional Republicans for what they are: “Upside-Down Stimulus Skeptics.”
Joe Conason writes:
Ignorance and mythology are out-shouting facts and wisdom in public discussion of President Barack Obama’s plan to stimulate the depressed economy. Excessive airtime is devoted to the prejudices of cable hosts and radio personalities who regurgitate the ideas they barely understand and who haven’t entertained an original thought since the Reagan era. Urgent action that could prevent enormous suffering and damage is delayed by all the same old agendas that have dominated Washington for the past three decades.
He goes on to conclude that, “Restoring the American dream means putting a floor under family incomes and reducing the gap between the richest and the poorest, not only for the sake of simple justice but because that is the most reliable economic policy for the nation as a whole.”
Can I get an Amen?
