EYKIW: A FLY ON THE DEBT CEILING
Mon, 18 Jul 2011 19:30:59
Today, I take a long look at the debt crisis. Why are we tottering on the brink of an economic tsunami?
How did we let the ideologues in the GOP bring us to this sorry state.
First I review the history of the deficit we are struggling to bring under control.
Then I look at how the outer world sees this kerfuffle, in contrast to the Beltway Bozos.
Then the question: What is Cut Cap & Balance and what would it look like if it passed (which it bloody well won't)
Then a quick review of where the GOP presidential candidates stand on the issue-not a pretty poll at all.
And remember, in the midst of all the huggermugger, you need to keep Oz out of crisis by committing to our community. Glad to have you on board.
